Gabriele Muccino | 117 mins | cinema | 12A / PG-13
Will Smith gives up the comedy act and blockbuster action for the sort of true story that you thought only happened in movies.
His relationship with his screen-son is impressive acting, ’til you realise it’s his real-life son too, but even that does little to undermine things. It manages to avoid the sugary sentimentality that you might expect and in the process makes for a fair tale of the underdog succeeding.
Cute kid too.
