The movie is based on Joy Mangano in this semi-fictional autobiographical story of her invention of the miracle mop in the 1990s. During the beginning of the film Joy discusses with her friend what led to their lives being so different than how they pictured which leads to a spurt of passion and perseverance and she has to battle many obstacles. The film is really easy to relate to given the dysfunctional family and seeing how life doesn't always turn out the way we plan. There is something humbling about a simple story of a normal individual who gets dragged through the mud and gets back up. If you'd like to watch a film about perseverance, this one is for you. Special features on the DVD include "Joy, Strength and Perseverance" and a gallery.
