If you asked me to name one film that could make you shed pity tears, sad tears and happy tears all at the same time, I’d name Gabriele Muccino’s The Pursuit of Happyness. The 2006 film is based on the true experiences of Chris Gardner, who struggled with homelessness and destitution before securing a job as a stockbroker.
