It’s a great movie launched in 2006 with the lead role played by Will Smith. He’s an agent and a loving father in the movie but he wanted more from his life. He joins an institute for MBA and he puts everything at stake for it. He has no source of income so he and his son stay in metro bathrooms and shelter houses at night and he goes to complete his MBA in the daytime. His struggle and hardship even resolution would bring tears to your eyes.

It is indeed the PURSUIT OF HAPPY-NESS.

It’s an emotional and thrilling movie at the same time. It’s starring Hillary Swank in 2004. This movie would make you cry in the end. It’s a movie based on a boxing coach who is a bitter person and he takes a poor old girl under his wing and trains her to become a great boxer. She injures herself and gets paralyzed. The relationship between coach and student is heartwarming.

It is an amazing movie released in 2016 starring Will Smith. He has just suffered a loss of a child and this movie has portrayed his emotional turmoil perfectly. His friends bring in stage actors to help him and ended up hiring Death, Love, and Life.

In this movie the interaction with Death, Love and Life changes 3 peoples perspective and make them choose the right direction.

Through the hardship, his wife (Renee Zellweger) is with him and he remerges through few small fights until he lands up a fight for the champion trophy which might as well be his last fight since it was fighting to death literally. The movie would thrill one moment and make you cry another. It’s dialogue when he was asked

what he’s fighting for? he answered “Milk”

it was an award-winning answer in the Movie.

  • Hidden Figures:

It was released in 2016 winning Oscar for its outstanding performance. The setup of the movie is of the 1960s in America when Blacks haven’t attained complete freedom and they’re still fighting for basic rights. The movie is based on true events. 3 black women got a job in NASA as clerical staff. Lead roles were played by Taraji P. Henson as Katherine a Mathematical Genius. Their acting in the movie is outstanding.

The dedication and hard work they show in a job with all bias they’re facing would touch you deeply. They emerged like a diamond after facing the rough conditions and hardship in life. These 3 outstanding women had made their mark.

  • NASA Named a building on her name- Langley Research Centre’s Katherine G. Johnson Computational Building.
  • 1st Black women to complete the Engineering degree, Mary Winston Jackson.
  • Black woman Olevia Spencer who Supervises the Programming Department of IBM in NASA.

Fight for your Rights.
