Sam Dawson (Sean Penn) is a developmentally disabled adult who has been singularly raising his daughter, Lucy, for all of her seven years. Sam provides a fun loving environment for Lucy, but it soon becomes apparent that she is intellectually surpassing him, when she begins intentionally stunting her own growth so as not to hurt her beloved father, a social worker intervenes, removing Lucy from her home and placing her in foster care. It is now up to the courts to decide if Sam is fit to continue raising Lucy. As the day of hearing looms, sam seeks the aid of self-absorbed, successful lawyer, Rita Harrison, who only agrees to take on Sam's case free of charge to save face with her colleagues. And so it begins: a battle of love versus ability, the individual against an unbending system. In the centre remains a father and daughter who just want to be together.

One of the best movies I have watched in a long time. An inspiring performance by Sean Penn who plays a mentally retarded man who is caring and looking after his 7 year-old daughter (Dakota Fanning). It all takes a hard turn when child services want to take away his daughter. Michelle Pfeiffer is the lawyer who is representing Penn to help him keep his daughter. The relationship grows between lawyer and client and you see a love between two different worlds add to this great movie. You need to watch to see how the court case ends and see what happens to the family. Laughter and the occasional cheer is followed with joy an some sadness.

Great watching and overall a great movie.
