Inspiration: I Am Sam

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.


This is all begin with something you like to watch in the movies. When I was watching alone in the mall, I went alone to go watching a movie. It is very sad to say most of the time that my parents aren’t that moviegoers just like me. But when times my sister is accompanying my mom, they are always going out without me. Of course, that’s the girls moment. But what I am pointing out, there is no other world if you want to go out and have watching a movie in the mall.


Of course, it is very awkward to say that you need him or her to get out of the house and ask if she or he comes with you to watch a movie. Then suddenly, you are just window-shopping at all. Most of my family did that in the past. Now we are facing the reality. We are hoping in dire need to cooperate not to spend more money anymore to watch a movie, but to wait in the television to televise it. That needs time to be patience. Of course nobody beats like watching James Bond marathon movies in just a day.


Most commonly I watch in the movie theatre which falls in my category: adrenaline-action, horror, romantic and some of I have to mention others. And of course, who would not think about comic book movies? Comic book movies are fun to watch all over again. Most of the time I need an extra money is to watch in the mall. When I don’t have much of the money, I’ve stay at home instead. Not just that I don’t like to stay at home, it’s because there are several times it happens to me. When I’m home, I’ve open the refrigerator to check if there are some food leftovers. But to think, I am not in America. I’m here in the Philippines. Every two years when our maid is sending to a summer vacation, I’ve always think that I should be responsible at home. Well, the last movie I’ve watch is the FIlipino movie which it’s Coco Martin and Angeline Quinto tandem movie in Born to Love You. And it’s my first time to watch Coco Martin’s movies since I don’t have a chance to watch his indie movies.

Angeline Quinto and Coco Martin

When you are asking me to go to watch a movie, I’ve always say yes if it’s your reward for us to be paid. But it’s not typical way for me if I ask a person to watch a movie, I would probably end up paying for the food and movie costs. And it is how I love watching a movie in the theatre. Sometimes I go alone watching in the theatre if I want to pay alone for the movie cost instead. In a way, it is how you reward yourself away from home, just to ease out sometimes your problems.


(This is a spoiler part of the movie reviews that I have to tell you. Just don’t read if you don’t have chance yet to watch of this movie.) Back to the movie of Born to Love You, this guy Rex Manrique (Coco Martin’s role) is very timid photographer that eventually leads to his miserable life. But until she met Joey Liwanag (Angeline Quinto’s role) in a wedding event. Just when Joey ruined the wedding shots of Rex’s posture, Rex’s life turns miserable when the event coordinator fumes into different mood. Then when they met again, Joey and Rex exchanged words in the company asking to go in the location to shoot some products. Joey’s character there is a Japanese translator who never met his father in her life. She was adopted by her mother’s family. She has two sisters who had with her during the singing competitions.


Joey eventually vomited in Rex’s shirt in the airplane disturbances when they are about to ride way to a province with Rex. Just about when Rex dried and changed his clothes to the john. Then the love romance scenes have been followed where they are in the location. Both of them instantly exchanged with their lives in the location. Joey finally admitted it that she has fallen in love with Rex. But what Joey didn’t know is Rex’s foster father. Arguing in his place, Rex fumes in his tone of his voice. He exchanged words with the foster father. His real father died a long time ago. When Rex’s mother also came and visited his place. His stepbrother promises him to go his party. Just he promised all the time, he broke his stepbrothers’ promise.


Joey exchanged and opened up with her story to Rex when he found that she is linger to find her real father is. Both of them has fate in each other. But Rex’s father died a long time ago when his mother remarried to another guy and have own family. The problem is that they are not accepted to one each another. All Rex wants is to prove his independent and don’t want support coming from his foster father’s wealth. Rex solved instead his girlfriend’s wish when he paid the money he wanted to show his girlfriend’s father Joey. The money he got is from the location they have had photo shoot for the company’s products.


In the end, Joey and Rex got into arguments when Joey finally knew what Rex’s problems is. He hated his foster father and didn’t want to reconcile with his mother either in the same house they are living. Then his foster father paid the support money he did for his stepson as well. Both in disarray, Rex and Joey went away from Manila and got engage in a car accident after they have had finally talked in a decent manner. Rex’s vision became relentless as a blind in a car accident. His vision torn apart from his father’s dreams. His father was also a photographer when he followed just like his father was. In their search for Rex’s disappearance, both parties in Joey’s family and Rex’s family started to investigate where Rex have gone for a long time. Then after a long period of search, Joey finally realized to go back in her work and found out that Rex is already blind. She found Rex in Tagaytay where she led a group of tourists around in Tagaytay picnic grove. Eventually Rex found hope of love when they met again.


Rex desired to see his family and reconciled with his foster father and his mother as well. Joey asked for a marriage to Rex, then he said yes. Finally a happy ending story! The lessons in the movie are very simple. Don’t be arrogant to your family or just to be ignore your stepfather, stepmother or who your stepsister or brother as well. Don’t be afraid to open up with the feelings in each other. In my opinion in this movie, I find very interesting in the movie. Just you notice their families are not the same. Always feel your emotions and control how your emotional behavior as well. Open up in a good conversation. Make a meeting around your family. I come from a religion that God teaches us how to be good as well. I see the good pointers in the movie as well. 


When finding your true love is a real good thing that will find your emotion behavior in a deep relationship. Just imagine when Rico Yan (as Lorenz) did the same thing as a photographer in his movie with Claudine Barretto (as Toni) in Got 2 Believe, I’ve always know Rico will be also a promising best actor. Then he did for his role portraying as a photographer and fell in love with Toni. In the end, the magic is always surprises that brings our joy into excitement. I’ve really like Got 2 Believe and Born to Love You a lot but they have different plot of the movie story. What they have common in the movie is that they are both photographer. I just know I am really in love in this movie. If Rico is still alive, he will be doing movies with so many promising actresses as well. He would do with Maja, Empress, Andi or to any promising actresses as well. Rico’s role for us is very important although he is not here anymore leaving a good example for everyone.


In life, life is always a sorrow, bitter and sadness stories. We have different lives, just like I do. I like the movie concepts of Born to Love You. If someone is really offering me to marry, I eventually jump for joy and say yes to her. Just because I don’t believe in fairy tales happy ending, I always think the time will come to me. I have different life as well. But being considered I have down syndrome, my life is always a mystery and to think that I am ready to another challenge. And that is the relationship. Of course, I’ve tried many times before to love a girl. Despite of my image and my personality, she don’t accept me as well. It’s her loss and not mine. And I believe if time will come, I will sure bring some positive signs all the time. That is who I am and that is how I love watching movies as well.
