Can a mentally challenged man be a good father? Sean Penn and Michelle Pfeiffer star in the moving story of unconditional love that grows between a man, his daughter and the attorney who accepts his case pro bono. When the mental capacity of Sam's (Penn) seven-year-old daughter exceeds his, the local department of social services removes her from his guardianship. But in his relentless battle to regain his daughter, Sam teaches his attorney (Pfeiffer) about love and guides her in her difficult relationship with her own son.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Not only does the manipulative I Am Sam oversimplify a complex issue, it drowns it in treacle.
The Film Yap
Sean Penn gives the most professionally shameful, cruelly wrongheaded performance ever nominated for a Best Actor Oscar, while Jessie Nelson Kristine Johnson's script lives down to Penn's ugly ineptitude with idiotic catchphrases and product placement.
