A man released from prison returns home to a small town in rural Iowa to make amends for the terrible crime he committed, but the townspeople are reluctant to forgive or forget without blood in return.
"Sam" and "Switch" are two movies made 24 years apart. The difference is "Sam" is actually funny, sweet and takes chances while "Switch" is dated, mean-spirited, and cops out with it's premise.
"Sam" is low budget and not as polished as a major studio romantic comedy but it certainly has more heart than most. It has a clever script, some famous supporting players and an amazing leading lady. You'll fall in love with Natalie Knepp. She gives an amazing performance. Mad Men's Salvatore also has a cameo that steals the show. This movie is sweet and will pleasantly surprise you if you give it half a chance.
I'm giving it a 10 out of 10 because even though it's got problems and not the most cinematic film it surprised me, made me laugh and genuinely made me care about the characters.
