Ratings info

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS is a drama about a man who struggles to look after his son while trying to forge a new career.

Language

The film contains two uses of strong language ('f**k'), the first a visual use with the word scrawled on a wall and the second uttered in a non-aggressive, non-directed and quite innocent manner by a child as he discusses the misspelling of words with his father, and for which he is gently rebuked. There are also uses of other, milder terms.

The film also contains a scene in which a man is hit by a car (in an undetailed manner) and some scenes of emotional upset.
