A Beautiful Mind

Nobel Laureate mathematician John Nash’s life has been depicted in this biopic.

He was a man with Paranoid schizophrenia which caused him to imagine people who existed only in his mind.

This is one of the best performances of him I have ever watched. This biographical drama won four Academy Awards in various categories including Best Picture.

Director Bennett Miller, along with Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill take a niche subject and turn it into a sharp, interesting and touching portrait worthy of baseball lore.

The Social Network

Have you heard about Mark Zuckerberg? Yes, you are right! He is the inventor of Facebook. This film shows how his creation became this social phenomenon, Facebook.

This film shows how Mark Zuckerberg struggled with plenty of obstacles to the C.E.O of Facebook.

The Social Network remains a top choice for inspiration because of its deft storytelling and brilliant background score.

The pursuit of happiness is an inspiring story of Christopher Gardner (played by Will Smith) who refuses to give up to the difficulties of life. Once he was evicted from his home. But eventually, he turns his life around and becomes the head of his own brokerage firm.

This film beautifully presents the father-son relationship and their struggle, sacrifices. I think this is a must-watch for everyone. You can find some gripping sense of reality in this film. 

Will Smith portrayed the role of Chris to perfection. Will’s real-life son Jaden Smith played the role of Chris’s son in this movie. His performance was awe-inspiring.

Forrest Gump

Robert Zemeckis’ Forrest Gump is one of the best motivational movies in the history of cinema. This story is about a slow-witted simple man from US state Alabama, Forrest Gump (played by Tom Hanks). But what’s inspiring is the fact that he never considered himself disadvantaged. This movie is all about his struggle throughout his life along with his childhood friend Jenny. The story portrays the ways of life taught by his mother.

This movie gained praise for its script, visual effects, direction, and Hanks’ performance.

Forrest Gump delights us with a spectacular journey of his life right from the phase of being a college football star to fighting in the Vietnam war to captaining a shrimp boat and so on.

Tom Hanks impressed the viewers with Forrest’s childlike innocence. He always tried to make people around him happy in his own small ways. It is indeed an inspirational movie.
