Will Smith, in a beautiful performance, slows himself down to play Chris Gardner, an earnest fellow who attempts to achieve middle-class solidity by becoming a stockbroker. Set in 1981, this shrewdly touching movie speaks to the anxieties of our own time, and what hooks you is how specific it is about one man’s economic perils.
