"Absolutely Gorgeous"
5 stars"

This is one of those essential films for your collection. Sean Penn gives a performance that will make you fall in love with him. The story will break your heart in the best way possible, and the post-feature interviews are a must to understand just how hard the makers worked to make it as authentic as possible. The use of actors with intellectual disabilities alongside the big name stars is so charmingly done that it warms you to the core. An outstanding movie.


I Am Sam

Love is all you need…

In his Oscar nominated Best Actor role Sean Penn plays Sam, a mentally retarded man who must fight to retain custody of his 7-year old daughter. With a hit soundtrack featuring classic Beatles covers, I Am Sam co-stars Michelle Pfeiffer (What Lies Beneath), Dianne Wiest (The Horse Whisperer), Laura Dern (Jurassic Park) and 2001 Screen Actors nominee Dakota Fanning (Trapped).

Critic Reviews:

  • " Penn's performance deserved the Oscar nomination. " – Richard Propes
  • " Moving film with great acting seems too contrived. " – Nell Minow
  • " Just watching Penn and Fanning interact…is worth wading through the occasionally ankle-deep syrup. " – John R. McEwen
