I have been reminded again and again throughout the week for this movie tonight for the commercial free movie show on TV. Yeah, it is very rare to get movies free of commercialism or any advertisements and sponsorships especially in such a corporate minded country like Singapore. Of course, with all these repeated reminders, I also tried to remind myself of catching this movie since Michelle Pfeiffer and Dakota Fanning are my favourites. Sean Penn reminds me of the movie Forrest Gump straight away.

Unlike Forrest Gump, this movie is not a comedy but more of a touching story of father-daughter relationship. It is definitely one of the best touching movies I ever watched. Michelle Pfeiffer is dazzling as ever and I just can't get enough of her timeless beauty .Sean Penn looks like Michael Schumacher sometimes! I mean his haircut and the angle in the movie.

The ending comes too fast and viewers are left wondering about the results of the court case for him to win over the custody of his 7 year old daughter. Dakota Fanning is as always very charming and always gives a good act on the screen. There was a time when I was worried Michelle Pfeiffer is falling for Sean Penn in the movie. That will make the whole story totally wacky! Overall, I love this movie and if you have not catch it, it is worth your time.
