  • Supporters of the U.S. judicial system will receive an eye-opening jolt upon watching Robert Mulligan's powerful, sympathetic drama about William Popper, a college student whose attitude in court and strong-minded defense of his personal ideals is as much the reason that he is given a prison sentence as the crime he committed. When William sees his chance to escape the walls that contain him, he grabs it, sending himself and his girlfriend on the run from a justice whose goal is condemnation, not truth. Filmed in the midst of American public outcry against blinded authority, THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS provides a clear glimpse of an era in which tradition and ideals often collided. The now-familiar faces of William Devane, Charles Durning, and Rue McClanahan appear in career-starting minor roles.

    "THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS is finally a gentle, unexpectedly lucid film, a low-key but compelling drama of a soul in crisis."
