I Am Sam


USA 2002, 127 minutes
Dir. Jesse Nelson
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama

Topics: Tearjerker, Mental Health.


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.
