Chris Gardner couldn’t have been content and ecstatic seeing the actor of Will Smith’s
caliber depicting his real life quite outstandingly which I believe
watching the film made him watching his life touching the lives of many
at the touch base of where it hurts most. This 2006 biographical film
was directed by Gabrielle Muccino and the screenplay was conducted by
Steven Conrad who closely based the storyline form the memoir written by
Gardner with Quincy Troupe. Though the film in its entirety didn’t
win any major awards (which it deserved) but Will Smith managed to be
nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Actor.
Generally the film takes a look at Chris Gardner’s an on-and-off-homeless salesman-turned stockbroker early
one-year struggle with homelessness. The situation unfolds at around
1981, in San Francisco, Chris Gardner (Will Smith) invests his family's
savings in portable bone-density scanners which he tries to demonstrate
and sell to doctors. The investment proves to be a white elephant which
financially breaks the family and as a result, his wife Linda (Thandie
Newton) leaves him with their son Christopher (Jaden Smith) and moves
to New York. While downtown trying to sell one of his scanners, Chris
meets a manager for Dean Witter and impresses him by solving a Rubik's
Cube during a short cab ride. Chris does not have enough money for the
cab fare and flees the cab driver into a subway station where he barely
escapes the cab driver but loses one of his bone scanners in the
process. This new relationship with the Dean Witter manager earns him
the chance to become an intern stockbroker. Despite arriving there
unkempt and shabbily dressed due to an emergency, Chris is offered the
internship. Chris is further set back when his bank account is garnished
by the IRS for unpaid taxes, and he and his young son are evicted. As a
result they are homeless, and are forced at one point to stay in a
bathroom at a subway station. Motivation drives him to find the Glide
Memorial United Methodist Church, which has a homeless shelter primarily
for single mothers and their children.
Due to demand for the limited rooms, Chris must frantically race from his internship work early each afternoon in order to land a place in line. Chris finds the bone scanner that he lost in the subway station from a demented man who believes it to be a time machine and it is now damaged, but Chris finally repairs it. Disadvantaged by his limited work hours, and knowing that maximizing his client contacts and profits is the only way to earn the one paid position that he and his 19 competitors are fighting for, Chris develops a number of ways to make phone sales calls more efficiently. He also reaches out to potential high value customers, defying protocol. One sympathetic prospect takes him and his son to a professional football game. Regardless of Chris's challenges, he never reveals his lowly circumstance to his co-workers, even going so far as to lend one of his bosses five dollars for a cab, a sum he can barely afford.
