5.0 out of 5 stars A well-balanced film, 13 Jan 2007

This review is from: I Am Sam [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
Having watched this movie and trying to be as objective as possible, I can say that this movie is somewhat special. It is one of these movies that many people are not aware of, and one that does not add anything unique to the film genre. Nonetheless, it is a clear star. Although ,all of its aspects (scenario, acting, direction) are laudable, what I liked most about this movie is the fact that stereotypes in the scenario are avoided. In fact, all of the characters were developed to such an extent - and portrayed in so profound a way- that the dichotomy between good and bad was transcended (a good person and a bad person fighting in court). Usually movies with a scenario that involves austere social workers, the State, foster parents, and well-paid lawyers paint them with a dark colors, while people with special needs are always the opposite. Here things are different and this vortex of stereotypes is adroitly avoided.

All in all, a nice, bitter-sweet movie with moments of both sadness and happiness, as well as some quite humorous lines. In the beginning I was quite reluctant to watch this movie myself, but now I suggest it without any second thought to literally anyone with a DVD player. thanks Irene!
