On Saturday, July 21, 2018, at 7:00PM at the ACO Campus in Princeton, NJ, ACO Movie Night & Open Discussion will feature The Pursuit of Happyness
, starring Will Smith and his son, Jaden, who bring to life the true story of Chris Gardner, a single father struggling to step up from the bottom rung of the ladder while valiantly protecting and providing for his young son in 1980s San Francisco.

When Chris’ wife leaves him, he has no job, no home and a five-year-old son to care for. Their salvation may lie in an unpaid internship at a prestigious brokerage firm where Chris hopes to secure a job at the end of six months, but meanwhile the pair must survive by living in homeless shelters. Chris pushes himself to the breaking point trying to create a better life, all the while focusing on nurturing his son and keeping him from knowing the direness of their situation.

Peter A. Crist, M.D. and Susan Marcel, D.O. will lead the open discussion after the film. We invite you to join us for a thought-provoking discussion about the often overlooked, crucial role and function of fathers in their children’s lives.

Admission to Movie Night is free thanks to the generosity of supporters like you. Complimentary popcorn and beverages will be served. For reservations call (732) 821-1144, email or reserve on-line.
