Very well done. You are there with them every step of the way. Especially when they are running to catch something!

An understated yet incredibly powerful performance by Will Smith. I wanted to watch this movie when it came out in theaters yet shied away from it because I knew the story would include some very difficult moments. And boy does it! Moments when you are the edge of your seat, just aching at the possibility that something else could go wrong, wondering how they will deal with it.
But this week, I figured, if other people have the courage to actually face being homeless with a child, how could I not have the courage to sit in my living room and watch a movie about it? Homelessness is such a huge problem in our country right now. And people who are in this struggle don't need our sympathy, they need our empathy, and for us to hope with them like we do with the characters in this film.
The soundtrack is well done, all the performances are great, and in the end, of course, it is a film about fatherhood as well as about pursuing happiness.
