love is all you need
Sam has the mental capacity of a 7-year-old. He has a daughter with a homeless woman who abandons them when they leave the hospital, leaving Sam to raise Lucy on his own. But as Lucy grows up, Sam's limitations start to become a problem and the authorities take her away. Sam shames high-priced lawyer Rita into taking his case pro bono and in turn teaches her the value of love and family.

I Am Sam... I just can't get enough of this tear jerking beautiful film, it just keeps on getting better every time i watch it.. The fathers love for his child is everlasting... I disagree on the law in this film, does make me angry.. it happens in the real world and it's cruel in my opinion.. everything about this film is great, the sound track, the picture, the story plot, the script, and not forgetting the cast that made it what it was.. I love Sean Penn, and this is gotta to be for me his best performance... this is a film to watch before you die... beautiful..
