A brief word has to be said about Sam's friends -- his informal support network -- Robert, Ifty, Brad and Joe. Everybody says Bob's Big Boy has the best hamburgers. Because of that bias I approached this movie with low expectations. For anyone who has Sean Penn as a favourite actor, it's a must watch as it is easily his one of many remarkable performance and the stepping stone of his career. I can show you out.
In other films you would see his role as the simplistic one but here that is left to Pfeiffer to deliver and she fluffs it terribly. He raises her for 7 years until she mentally outgrows him at which point social services steps in. And I'm very firm on this. So Sean Penn's character 'Sam' stands out against his group of friends like a fish out of water, trying to get in every speech and facial nuance that says 'hello I'm retarded'. . And it's about love, like she said.
I came home and gave my 5 year old the biggest hug of her life and the tears just started flowing. The film is enriched with major cast members that in turn give out one of their best performances in their career life. I don't want to read it if you can't. What's wrong with your father? When I worked as a janitor at the La Reina Theater. Nor did I experience similar trouble with Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man or Giovanni Ribisi in The Second Sister. You said you would be my lawyer? I understand that-- The customer's always right. Unfortunately, the movie is not a fairy tale, it deals with the premise so seriously as to cover a complete legal trial taking place over several weeks if not months, trying to establish something which shouldn't have to be established in the first place.
Oh, you smell so good. Could we possibly talk about this when I get home? Maybe everybody's right about that, see. The music, which largely consists of Beatles tunes performed by other artists, fits the film perfectly. Be careful, because you're gonna get hurt. Sam and his friends are all a bit obsessed with the Beatles and apparently, so were many L. After multiple attempts, Sam manages to appoint an attorney Michelle Pfeiffer who only takes the job at first as a dare. Let me be subjective for a moment and tell you that other than the language cyanide, I Am Sam is one of the finest pieces of entertainment I have ever seen.
We can see that he's mentally retarded. I just want to talk to you about your legal rights. You made an excellent choice, Sam. I am Sam is a sensational dramatic piece that will leave you with tears to wipe. Did you get in touch with your friend? Sam manages to get pro-bono support from the efficient and rushed Rita Harrison and starts a challenging process to try and get Lucy back.
Your Honor, please let the record show. Suddenly, his boss tells him that he has to go. I didn't get my whole check because I had to go. I have to go to Room 324 on the third floor. As a veteran of disability services I can tell you the characters seem authentic enough. Yeah, because I wanted to be close. Hang on one second, please.
However my favorite part of this scene is the last shot of everyone walking with their balloons. The lady in your office is crying. Laura Dearn ambles through looking like she's smelt something bad. A standout scene is where Sam figures out that Lucy has been hiding her reading ability from him. The film is full of affecting moments, so if you're in mood for it, be ready to shed a tear or two. It is a sad reality that is faced by some mentally handicapped parents, and one can't help but feel sorry for the situation. It is particularly interesting to note that the healthy family relationship between Lucy and Sam is scrutinized while the somewhat dysfunctional family relationship between the lawyer and her son is never even questioned.
Thank you for coming here today, Annie. And though I have a pounding head right now, I feel like I'm the luckiest dad in the world! Maybe its because I'm a father of a six year-old girl, but I was moved by the love between father and daughter, Sam and Lucy. A guy bought it for his auto shop. Interestingly, the more a character comes to like Sam,. She knew what I was referring to; our 6 month old little girl and our 5 year old little girl. And you know it's going to be manipulative from the get go when you understand the premise.
I want you to feed her first. And so, would it be fair to say. Sam, it's Annie's turn now. Who do you want to be like. He doesn't want to play with me. I know the bus routes better than she does.
