Dakota. Fanning is cute. Acting is also good.
Places where characters accept handicap and are realistic.

[Bad point]
Was there any few impressive scenes?

[Comprehensive evaluation]
I think that it is an entirely well-organized work.
Sean: The pen was as high a performance as ever.

This work is a work that depicts parent and child love with my daughter who loves through Sam who is a disabled, but I am sorry. I could not really be impressed after watching it.

It is a work that is very easy to see because there is relief of darkness by placing the main character Sam's struggle on light and bright music and this is a very refreshing and pure atmosphere, but this personally feel rather bruised .

Certainly parents are parents, no matter what handicap they possess. And it may not be good to forcibly separate the father and daughter who had been having happy days by the circumstances of adults.

However, what is not even better is that this work misrepresented that if there is love only if it is about 7 years old intelligence, this work is able to raise a daughter. In short, being too beautiful with Sam of the hero blatantly. Child-raising is not something that you do not serve with a half - hearted feeling. Responsibility for keeping important lives as parents and raising them until becoming a single servant Can Sam accomplish against serious role? I think that it is realistic that the official who was drawn as a bad guy at the time of that trial is realistic and says quite severe things, but I think that it is the just argument.

Although it is a work full of beautiful parent and child love when looking only on the surface, it is contents which are too easy to think if we consider the weight of the material being treated.

I admit that the performance of the actor was wonderful and the girls acting as daughters were cute and attractive, but also the feeling that they want the producers to be tempered so that they will never again produce such hypocritical work again We will put the evaluation as "worst".

Is the first half a warm hearted and trying to regain custody in the second half desperately?
To work hard at a coffee shop desperately. But there is not too much tragic feeling that the place called for Lucy is emphasized.
It appears from the dialogue with the heroine which is a true opposite type "like a friend of a college graduate .. not much salary so much" and so on.
The performance of the protagonists such as gestures making Machiato is good.
Even the hero of pacifism with few enemies, the heroine will live, that the battle to regain the child.
Lucy sometimes says good things.
To say how the surroundings and attorneys see the hero.
The heroine attorney has serious weak points.
[Bad point]
Some points are also somewhat severe.
[Comprehensive evaluation]
I am impressed, but there are also some painful parts to watch and I'd like to keep it "very good".

Well, no matter what you think is the best touching work.

[good point]
It does not cry at the end, there are parts that can be cried in places.
... That 's all I say.

[Bad point]
Of course nothing.

I was touched simply.
Story composition, directing, actors and so on, everything is perfect.
Works that should be watched more than once in an absolute lifetime.
I can not explain the details of the story.
Because it is a movie that can not be worded.
I will already know the evaluation.

Acting thought that I was seriously working on the work of a difficult theme is not complaining, especially Sean of my father's sam role.The acting power of the pen is a story that can not be watched without tears although there is a comic coming off Pity a little People trying to separate from them are bad-daughters They are trying to do their best for their daughter Lucy
(Of course, it is only an obstacle in cinematic terms)
Especially foster people sympathize, I was really pretty But because parents love was emphasized that much I was emphasizing my family in the future I wish to see Christmas friends all together

Mr. Sean Penn's performance is also good, but Michelle Pfeiffer and Mr. Dakota Fanning performances are good.
The content was the main affection of parents and children.

Especially not.

After all, Shaun. Would not it be that the pen was very good?
I was impressed with a very wonderful parent-child relationship.

I thought that the story of people with intellectual disabilities is dark, but this is a work that I was impressed brightly.
Because my sister is also born obstacles, unfortunately the surrounding eyes, criticism without mind, bullying,
It feels like I'm feeling cold, but I think that the prejudice of human beings etc. not only such beautiful things were drawn also in this movie.

It would be a poor feeling if the hero did something disgusting as it is a movie,
As long as I have watched such a movie and moved, I would like to pray that more people will make use of it in real life as well as not having prejudice against disabled people.

It is one of favorite movies.

Although the content is a bit heavy story, I think it is a work that was finished in a bright thing that does not make it feel at all.

In the cast, Shawn who played a mentally handicapped person.The pen is exhausted as one word of wonderful.
The best thing is Dakota Fanning, a child role.
The scene that goes out at night and goes to see his father is a scene that I like quite a lot.

I made the evaluation "very good".

First half development was good.
The most impressive thing is that I do not like reading books to Lucy, Sam said "I can read books because you are not stupid", it was a scene that let me read a book.
Sam is a mentally handicapped person, but he is by no means a bad guy Although it certainly causes problems in many places, he also felt his kindness.
Whereas other children did not have much liking,
Lucy was able to have a favorable impression. With acting skills,
He was playing adorably a lovely girl.
Sam became somewhat sad when he got seriously treated.
I have also worked properly and I had a good deal with Lucy ...
Overall it was not a dark story so I think that such works are pure if you enjoy it purely.

I liked such a proper movie and I was enthusiastic about seeing it crying today!
Why did I get tired of halfway through.

It was painful from the first half, and sometimes I did not want to see it very much.
My daughter recognized the father's illness,
It was awfully hard for me to read only simple books.

I saw it all, but I was impressed.
But it was not only impression, it was a work that I can really feel the spirit of coldness and prejudice of the surrounding people.

It was a very impressive masterpiece.
I first thought that I would get a dark impression by saying that it is Sam's work with mental retardation.
But actually seeing it ...
The gag was abundant from the beginning.
I felt that I had overturned the succession image of the disabled's work "dark work".

Sam and Lucy's parent-child relationship was also very moving.
I was able to see the parent and child between the ordinary father and the daughter that was a bit different.
I felt that it was awfully impressed that "Oh yes my family is OK".

Among themselves, it is a work of "the best among the highest among the best".
I also recommend it to other people.

There are diversified people with disabilities, so many people. Most people will have sexual desire and I think that there are many people who can have sex. I think that you can dislike other sex separately, but because it is people with sex, not because it is disabled, otherwise it is not.

Then I guess this is just entertainment and I'm not making a real story or another. I think that it is only a common story though. No, I'm fond of talking about something.

I saw a rental DVD. With subtitles.

There is little spoiler.

I saw it with my acquaintance, but it did not suit me.

It seemed that each scene seemed to be looking at the full compilation of goat haigi, feeling shorter and shorter.
While I thought about how far is the introduction, "It's over"? It ended with a feeling.

What I was worried about watching was that I did not understand how to look at Sam to the very end.
Because there are no mentally handicapped people around me, I have only the image I saw in the drama.
Perhaps we should look at a man with a child's mind, but "Sam said Lucy was his own child = probably sexual acts", but at the moment I do not seem pure .
I guess that's not related to obstacles, but it's not for me. It can not be thought of separately.

Besides, Sam seems to be pretending to be disabled only when it is convenient.
As the actor of the role of Sam is good at acting, I can see that it is not so, but I feel that way absolutely.
I think the reason is probably due to subtitles.
Subtitles have become lines of adults, and there are also many kanji.
Although it may be related to the limit of number of characters, I wanted to devise a bit more contrivance, such as heavy use of hiragana katakana.
I do not use "kanji" "love", seven years old.

Afterwards, something will not come to something even for the ending.
I think Lucy is best at Sam's base, but I do not think that alone is enough.
Did I improve my life properly?
Foster parents seemed pretty. I guess I really liked Lucy.

As the production is based on chitin, "It's an impressed scene" is a solution, but I could not touch it.
What you can not do in the moving scene is not a pleasant viewer.
Eventually I could not follow the story till the end.

It is a good story, but I did not enjoy it because I was watching this evaluation.

Shaw of Sam role.It works that pen gets splendidly. It is wonderful to have accomplished a very difficult role called mentally handicapped. I felt that I was a competent owner with the ability to instantly tell the audience Sam to the audience. Even if I say it many times I can not overstate it. If you see it in another movie, it is totally different. God is your ability.

So, if this movie is said to be the end, it is not the case, it is Dakota of the role of Lucy who can say the other main character.Fanning is. It is a perfect girl saying that she is cute and able to perform acting. The girl who has a mentally handicapped father is also a difficult role as Shawn, and it is wonderful performance which is superior to pen. applause. Expecting the future? The image called a firm girl is really perfect, and this was a qualified person.

Speaking of the story, under the theme of whether the father of intellectual disability can obtain the child rearing ability, it became a totally satisfactory story overall. In the place that should be touched at the end, it is a good story that makes me feel impressed firmly and I am not particularly dissatisfied. Actively the actors are too good to be moved.
Also, it was not the case if it was said that the theme was dark in only the theme, the basic was bright and funny. The trial scene is not as smart as I expected. You can see sunnary by its self-paced feeling.

As an evaluation, "acting is a good point".

Although it was told that prosecutors were also working, it is true that the one who was brought up by ordinary parents for children is certainly true, but after all it is important to live by themselves I think that it was very good to have spent the convincing power of using the full story ... It is important for both children's future and which one is important ... Although it is difficult, in the end love affair is different after all I think so, especially if it is a child, as to whether things should be chosen.

As for my father, it certainly does not have a feeling but after all the surrounding people changed to the better one by their fathers' virtue, it is probably the correct answer, because that father is the most fruit that may be the most correct I think that it was also important that it was not just "right of the real father".

First of all, Lucy is too cute!
And that acting skill! It is a story.

Although the work itself was a theme that tends to be heavy, it was comically drawn and refreshingly drawn and it was a work that I can feel favorable.
Sam also performs so much as to make her think that he really has a disability ..
It is splendid.
Also, the place where Lucy 's true honest coming out was sad and sentimental.
Later, after being separated, Lucy knows the importance of Sam, the father, and parentage and child love deepens. I thought that this would lead to any parent and child with or without disability in the body.
At this time, I felt very deeply that my family love deepened beyond the barriers of people with disabilities.
I will evaluate this work depicting such "family love" as the highest.

No, this is a very good work.

A series of performances that can only be achieved by considerably studying the disabled person. The child role was also good.

I also have a solid script and a fun piece.

A starring actor who performed intelligently handicapped persons with intellectual disabilities, a superb actor who played a hard role without understanding, a heroine of a child role who will catch it, a background such as excellence of production and parentage and affinity of ties and love do not turn backward That stance that I told the crowd to the audience.It is only me who reminds me of "Nanaka 6/17" stance to remind me of important things with pure innocence.
A piece that can be recommended as a movie that can be impressed.

2014/08/17 Evaluation change.

Child's intelligence exceeds parents ... Is the flow of time separating crucially crucial parents and children?
Well, in reality, it would be better to have a life skill ....
Still, the warmth possessed by Sam & Lucy parent and child should be inspired, not Rita.
A masterpiece expressing pure affection straight.

I saw this movie at a movie theater. Originally I meant to see a different movie (I think it was a Spider-Man), the thing I saw at the complex in front of the performance was a scene with Starbucks ....

I could not help falling as soon as I went out, but I was drawn to my mind. Although it was a work that does not feel a pattern like whether it is aiming at a certain extent or not, it was drawn in and kept watching. It is secret that it was tearing down. However, the current evaluation is not up to the highest. It may be because I had a feeling of being accustomed as a pattern and pattern.

I recommend you have the opportunity to watch on DVD. I think that it might be a kind of fantasy though.

We rented the video that the cover of the Beatles flows. Cover songs such as Two of Us and Lucy in the Sky with the Diamonds used in this movie were in the movies very much. Besides that, it was good that the name of Rita and the Beatles started well.

The work which made the disabled person the hero is absolutely an image which tends to be heavy and tends to flow in the dark direction, but since this work was made to think deeply and there was also brightness, refreshing feeling after seeing The rest, never felt sinking.
The main character whatever brought me to the brightness is something like Sam, are not they?
Sam, daughter Lucy, good friend Lita Rita, friends of Sam, Annie have their own, but they are all bright people and likable. And my family who accepted Lucy was also good people. Because I was in love with love properly. So maybe it was a little hard to think of this family.
There is almost no bad person in this work if it seems (Although it seems that mother who disappeared with Sam and Lucy are condemned to be selfish). People who judged that Sam had no child rearing ability should have judged that way after considering Lucy's happiness.
Certainly, if a person who has only intelligence about seven years old is trying to raise a child alone, there will always be difficulties.
As a realistic problem, I think that economic power and academic ability will continue to be questioned.
It might be better for you to go to the facility if you consider such a thing or go to the facility. However, that is what others think, and from the child himself (Lucy in this case) it can not be said that it is the best way ...
What is happy for children? The answer is never one ... I felt like I taught that kind of thing.
And I think that Sam and Lucy 's parent / child love, bonds and friendship gradually connected between Sam and Rita, something very heartwarming movies. It was a good impression because I was doing the way the feeling ended like a happy ending of the last.
The acting of the actors is also wonderful. Especially the child of the role of Lucy was cute!

Sam has mental intelligence and is only about 7 years old intelligent. Since the mother did not leave the child under Sam after giving birth, Sam was to nurture his daughter Lucy by himself. Sam was not sure about anything such as raising children, but while consulting with friends and the only woman living nearby Annie etc, he nurtured Lucy very hard. It was worth touching with affection and full of love, but although they were good friends, she said that facility staff came to a seventh birthday party to protect Lucy.

An impressive storm. A wonderful mountain of dishes after finishing watching ... It was a face that we could not show to people (lol).
The scene where Sam is qualified as a father is really thoughtable, and I can not see it without tears. Rita said "The intelligence has nothing to do with the affection for children" remained in the impression very much. Certainly, if the parent is an elite lawyer, it may be possible to provide sufficient education. However, there are many things that is not so much if children are happy. Since the shadow of Rita parent and child was always flickering, I always thought that I was watching while comparing.
In reality Sam would be hard to raise Lucy. Although it is not an abusive translation, it is impossible to meet a child by putting it in the facility. Even if you have enough affections, intelligence is torn apart just by saying the same level. Is it reality? I felt doubt about the definition of a good parent when I was thinking about such a thing.
Dakota of the role of Lucy, Fanning was very cute and lovable. I want to take pictures of up scenes staring at Sam with big eyes, stretch it, decorate it in a room with panels. The place where Lucy is strangely grown up also complements the tragic feeling of Sam parent and child in real.
It is an image that receives a cold impression on the whole by the blue light, but thanks to individual and bright character such as Sam and Lucy, friends around, Rita and Annie, it was not heavy but received even a refreshing impression It was.
Sean. Penn personally was an image of a mafia or a murderer, but such a role also gets stuck. It is brilliant that acting is a scene that comes late for Lucy's visit and falls boldly. I think it is quite difficult to fall down so well ....
I think that this movie will be put in the work I want to review many times.

Movie of the impression! Sean of the starring acting to tear the tears of Poon ... It is truly wonderful acting.
I was touched by the impression of playing the role of the obviously brilliant ~, of course the girls with child duties also had a cute performance.
What the Beatles' song matched to what kind of mind, I think that it was a really nice story although it is content to say that please let me cry anything with the impressive setting of the stage set neatly.
Although it may be many if it says a small thing, still I was impressed.
The performances of the actors were very good.
