I'm not sure this movie changed my life... but it did inspire me. For those of you who may not have seen it, it's the true story of a young father (played by Will Smith) who is very down on his luck but he doesn't let this - or even homelessness - dampen his 'American Dream' of working for a major financial investment firm and giving himself and his young son a better life.

Even though I really enjoyed the movie... there's something that bothered me afterwards... I couldn't help but think of the many homeless people who for whatever reason don't have the physical or mental health necessary to succeed in today's demanding workforce. What will become of them and what can we as a society do to help?

I totally and absolutely loved this movie.
it was inspiring.
i think what i loved most was seeing the guy at the end of his rope n not giving up. finding the strength and courage to wake up everyday n keep going despite being homeless, jobless n all - that was amazing.
:D:
As footsteps shies the front,
preferring the wake to decorate,
my life i pray,
shall acquire similar character.
