Feat. Sean Penn, Michelle Pfeiffer, Dianne Wiest, Laura Dern, Richard Schiff, Dakota Fanning
Aroview: High-calibre acting from Sean Penn, as a retarded man fighting to retain custody of his 8-year old daughter, distinguishes this intense tearjerker.
Chiefly a legal showdown between welfare-services, who do not believe Penn can provide the necessary parenting, and the tactics of cynical lawyer Michelle Pfeiffer.
Average rating (Very Good). Showing 1-2 of 2 member reviews.
5 stars (Exceptional) A definite tear-jerker, this is superb acting from Sean Penn and young Dakota Fanning. A semi-legal story, heart-warming (and breaking) drama, and a great Beatles soundtrack. ~Tom H
3 stars (Good Enough) Succeeds despite formulaic, syrupy Hollywood script. Stellar performances by Sean Penn and by child actor Dakota Fanning. Good soundtrack. ~TE901
