It is all begin something you want in your life. Something big and something small, but it doesn’t matter what it looks like that they are all the same to me. I have never write something article aside from the movies to write about. What I am looking for is the review of I Am Sam movie film who Sean Pean and Michelle Pfeiffer are the casts in this film. And also in the part of the movie film is Dakota Fanning, the vicious character Jane Volturi who portrayed in Twilight saga series. Who would never forget in the part of Sweet Home Alabama who portrayed as young Melanie. Melanie is Reese Witherspoon‘s character.

 

I have a copy of I Am Sam before, but now it’s gone because typhoon Ondoy washed all the way of my unimportant things. But what I survived from the typhoon are my collectible drawings I have in my sketch pad. Forget what I am saying there. What I am telling you is my important review article of I Am Sam

 

I Am Sam, the movie film, is about the father who Sam Dawson (Sean Pean) has a daughter, Lucy Diamond Dawson (Dakota Fanning). He has a developmental disability who is having hard to understand the situation between him and his daughter Lucy. Despite the occasional of his limitations, Sam always know that he really loves of his daughter Lucy. Lucy, on her part, is a happy daughter who loves her dad as well. Until the same day, the not-so-nice neighbor Annie Cassell (Dianne West) came to pick up Lucy to take care when Sam always tried to take care of his daughter. But because of his disability, his friends also tried to consult Sam to take care of his own daughter. Although Sam is very nice character from what I have seen, he has concerns of his environmental behavior sometimes. He lacks abilities that he don’t have and my own part, I have an extraordinary abilities that cannot compare from him. We are far different from each other, but I am mobilized person who also have down syndrome that can interact with some other people.

 

When Lucy’s classmates usually offended of her father who is being as a retarded person, what they didn’t know that her father is a very special person for her. But in my case who happens to me that, I will consult the children’s parents not to offend or to tease the special children, just like I do. Most of my time when I was in grade school, I always heard some of my classmates and school mates really teased me that way.Not until that I grew up knowing that I have down syndrome, they respected me as well. Other people probably do not know what the down syndrome has capabilities to learn from the environmental from them.

 

In one birthday occasion, Lucy and Sam are very nice people when Lucy celebrated her birthday. But when the social worker came to approach Lucy, the took Lucy from unconditional very loving father Sam who wants Lucy by his side. Confused Sam didn’t know what to do, but allowing him to visit his daughter only two supervised visits. What he needs in his life is to be part with his daughter. One of Sam’s advice of his friends told Sam to approach the high-profiled lawyer Rita Harrison Williams (Michelle Pfeiffer). Rita, on her part, have always known that she can’t do the services in the town knowing that she will be paid. With her blunt attitude, capable to do ahead of time and her time towards life rushing to her day, Rita is a different person and hard to reach but finally Sam reached out the case about his daughter. He explained how his daughter Lucy was in the custody under supervision. Sam always wanted what he wants to do to take care of his daughter. Still confused when Sam didn’t know what to do, Rita seems approved to take Sam’s case as a pro bono case. Rita sometimes a hard-to-get lawyer who always a reputation in being a harsh lawyer.

 

Sam and Rita worked hard to practice the lines to get in Lucy’s custody. Sam found so hard to get in the practice lines that sometimes Rita told him to say do and don’ts, but helplessly Sam have hard time with his lawyer. He found the Rita’s picture when he visited the lawyer’s home. And even said in his mannered voice, he unintentionally said to help Rita’s problems with her son and her husband as well. In life, sometimes we find difficulty times when we balance our time with our family and our job as well. In the movie film, I have felt that there are something strange between Sam and his lawyer Rita.

 

On my part, I also don’t want to do but unintentionally saying to help her life back in the job as well. Knowing that Rita’s son is also very active on his way. But Rita’s husband is always on her way arguing all the time in the house without or with Rita’s son in the house. Unknowingly, Sam didn’t want to hurt her feelings as well. But she came in a warm tone to help Sam’s case towards his daughter. When they went to the trial, Sam unsurprisingly didn’t know what to do as the other side in the trial hassling Sam to break down. Being as a not capable father, Sam always knows that he would gives his best to be a father to Lucy. And my part again, I’m usually reading the civil code of the philippines book. When knowing the articles, I have to come up with the best answers when the lawyer tells me about. Simple and warm voice that has to be in the court, otherwise you break down just what Corona did in the impeachment court.

 

The day after the trial court, Lucy finally resides with the foster home with Randy Carpenter (Laura Dern). Unknowingly Randy came to see Lucy again when Lucy tried to go to her father’s home again every night. Lucy found uncomfortable in her life without her father in her side. I feel the same way if I am in Lucy’s place. Knowingly that I miss the father very much, I would to go to the place with him all the time. That is why on my part it happened to me.

 

I found disturbing facts that my parents scolded me at night, that many times in my life before strolling away from home. I went to faraway places and not knowing how to do with the money riding in a jeepney going to Manila and Makati as well. I’ve never realized on my part of that when I finally know.

 

Untimely in Lucy’s part, she always don’t want in Randy’s place. She wanted to be with her father. But the foster family wanted to adopt her just to raising up her well in their part also. With the arrangement of the case, Sam found his hobby strolling the dogs in the park just to show Lucy to love the dogs. Everyday Sam passed by near Lucy’s place, but finally reaching the end of the case. Rita, on her part, finally divorced her husband and now a single mother together with her son. In a nice soccer game, Sam plays a referee in a soccer field where Lucy plays in a soccer game. Happy they have been and with Sam’s friends are also there. Rita also watched Lucy’s game as they played finally part of the movie film, a happily ending as well.

 

In my opinion, there are always time a broken heart between the child and the father as well. I learn the valuable lessons in life. Don’t dwell too much what you are doing helplessly and clueless as be. Find time with your special child. I have never remember entirely my childhood memories, just because I’ve been electrocuted and an accident in the road. I won’t be here anymore if I cannot write an article for this now. Losing somebody is not hard to accept. My sisters are in Canada and I found time hard also in my life. We grow up together when we are still young. My sisters knows me well than my friends, classmates and far relatives as well. But the family I am growing up is always there. My father is very nice and gentle person. He might be a priest when he is still young. And my mom teaches my lessons in life as well.

 

My mom brought me up well in a catholic way. We are christians and I usually go to the mass sometimes alone just to pray. When Sunday masses brings us together, I tag along just to get mass with my parents. My two sisters are in Canada. And I am staying home with my load business. I find my time hard sometimes knowing that I don’t have much that activities. I am now usually walking in late afternoon and doing some of the time. My life now is also different from my school time, and now as adult, I am still facing new problems later in life. Knowing like Sam in the film, I probably do the same thing. But I have knowledge in the law, knowing that I am studying the articles in the law book. Which it’s hard to believe, that sometimes I found new knowledge in the internet. Knowing that I have blood in being as a law person which it falls to my far relatives to Aguinaldo (in my mother’s side) and Osmena-Veloso (in my father’s side) as well. I do not know at the start that knowing the political clans in the Philippines.

 

I know in my heart that I can be stronger than Sam. Knowing that I also have freedom of speech, I also have to be part in the trial court if it happens to me that way. And I will fight what is right and what is wrong. Many others fails to do that. Some of the few men starts to stand up again as a real fighter who fights to their rights and fights to their dreams. In fact, I am also fighting my dreams to achieve someday. I may be not an intelligent president Aquino as well, but knowing that I have the blood, I will take care of my voice. Sometimes it triggers my unintentionally voice that I somehow control my behavior. I forgive to the person, but in fact, it’s hard to raise the trust of the person towards me. There are many battle cases in the field and knowing of them, I also have down syndrome. I want to teach children and parents as well. I want to be inspirational person just what Rico Yan did to his life. With principles in life, I always find hard to reach other people’s voices. I saw many thousand news in the television where I watch whether it’s CNN or local news as well. In my past, I find CNN as a boring channel. But now as an adult down syndrome, I find interesting news fact in the CNN channel. Knowing the facts could be achieve in your knowledge.

 

The truth of Down Syndrome simply amazes me somehow even I do have that. Some of the few people can achieve in their lives. I watched the tourette syndrome movie about Front of the Class which also inspires me. Being as having with tourette syndrome doesn’t mean you can’t teach kids. You take in charge of the class and teach them the way it can inspire your students about you. I also want to be part of that. But sometimes my lack of my skills as a teacher ends me as well as an inspirational studio writer. Being as a different person is not a big deal. I find hard to believe I also can do that.

 

I also watch the Temple Gardin which Claire Danes portrays the role of the same name. There are many other aspects in life when you know how to confront people. Temple is a perfect example and Brad Cohen in Front of the Class as well. I know I Am Sam is hard to get reach of the movie. You have to watch it again. Being as a moviegoer before as I watched alone in the theatre somehow I felt as a different person. But now as grown up man, I see my vision as a different watching a movie. I’ve never watch the film once but to watch again in the television, is that to understand of the film critics. I’ve never know how to explain it but I enjoy writing down of my article reviews about it.

 

This is the second film review I write about the I Am Sam aside from the film review the last movie of Born to Love You I watched in the theatre. I love what I am doing. I am so in love, in fact I love literature. If I’ve never get a promising career whether as a employee in the job or as an entrepreneur as I am now today. In fact, I am enjoying most of my time. I don’t watch if I don’t understand. I have to watch it again and do understanding the film. Last night in fact after coming home from the mass, I’ve watched the second The Lord of the Ring: Two Towers up to last sequel trilogy The Lord of the Ring: The Return of the King. I don’t know how to express myself in the movie of I Am Sam. I feel Sam’s character but instead writing down the facts I know is a little surprisingly somehow.
