A movie staring Sean Penn and Michelle Pfieffer. In this film Sam Dawson is mentally disabled and raising his daughter Lucy(Dakota Fanning) with a group of his also disabled friends.

When Lucy turns 7 a social worker decides that she should no longer be living with her father. Sam then hires lawyer Rita Harrison(Pfieffer) to represent him in court. Sam falters on the stand and custody of his daughter is suspended.

This movie is spectacular. It should be seen by all. The acting is all very well done. Even the little girl is convincing and natural on the screen. The director did a wonderful job with putting this together.
