This movie, I am Sam is brilliant.  It receives a highly recommended watching rating from both Ann and I.  In fact, this is one I would add to the list of worth buying to keep in your personal movie collection.  Ann asked me to watch this film and I am thankful that I did.  The performances were excellent and the story was well written.  I was blown away by Dakota Fanning.  Her performance is up there with her performance in Man on Fire, another movie I thoroughly enjoyed with Denzel Washington.  We both loved the soundtrack too, so take a listen to our podcast to hear some of the tunes of I am Sam.
