In the Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
Good work ethic goes a long way. Chris Gardner (Will Smith) is a struggling salesman in San Francisco who is left homeless and caring for his young son after he blows his family’s savings on a bad business investment. But Gardner doesn’t waste time despairing. He decides to take on an unpaid six-month long internship that could potentially lead him to the job of his dreams. Though the other interns are younger and more educated, Gardner’s common sense, good attitude, and incredible work ethic prevails. He gets the dream, while also earning the respect of everyone he works with.
