i like this movie a lot, it inspire me and it makes me cry.A retarded father who took care of her little girl which is more mature than him, but the beautiful thing in here is the Love and affection between the father and the daughter inspite of hardness in life they keep on loving each other. For sure, true happiness cant buy any amount of money, it comes from the heart.

I love also this movie. Taking care a child when you are alone is very challeging but if you are retard parent I think you faced many challenges and you struggled more. I remembers a scene when Dakota (I forgot her name there) asked her father Sean Penn about so many things the Father can't answer the questions in a complex answer. Despite so many challenges in they life they survive because of love their shared togehter.

This is one of my favorites too and i liked the idea of how a daughter was happy and never got ashamed of her father... It's a nice movie for those who want to be a lawyer. It's inspirational, an educating film, it's for parents who have an abnormal kid too or the other way around... It's about unconditional love, and for me, it's like living a life as normal as you could even if it's real hard. And what makes it harder is raising up your own father at a very, very, very young age.

It is indeed one of the best movies ive watched, yes it made me actually tear at times. Abit too dramatic some would say but i think it was beautiful. Sean penn acting was brilliant so was little Dakota Fannings'. Makes you appreciate and realise how lucky we are to be 'normal'

i cannot agree more. this is one movie which makes me cry everytime i watch it. it did not interest me at first, but when i got to see it, it became an instant favorite. i really recommend this movie, very heart wrenching and inspiring. a very fine performance by sean penn and dakota fanning.
