It is a hard-hitting movie that teaches you how important it is to protect intellectual property.
An apt title for a story that beautifully essays the life-long struggles of single father Chris Gardner (Will Smith), who dreams of a better life and happiness for his son. This movie is both emotionally moving and inspiring. In the midst of numerous obstacles that life has in store, Gardener rises to become a Wall Street legend.
When moral epiphany strikes, Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) drafts a heartfelt company-wide message that gets him fired from his job as a successful professional sports agent.
