Film The Pursuit of Happyness (Gabriele Muccino, 1962)

Tonight, I saw The Pursuit of Happyness directed by Gabriele Muccino and featuring Will Smith as the protagonist Chris Gardner along with his real-life son Jaden Smith playing Chris Gardner's son Christopher. It was entertaining and interesting, a story of a man who struggles in 1980s America for making a living, though not particularly memorable.

By the way, a friend forwarded this amazing video of marionette-like puppetry; there's a little bit of French at the beginning and end, but it's worth watching the full 8+ minutes of this otherwise dialogue-less performance:
