'I Am Sam' (2001)
Sean Penn's lack of success in securing the rights to original tunes from the Beatles may have been the only place where he actually succeeded in the making of sodden melodrama, in which he plays a mentally challenged adult fighting for custody of his young daughter (Dakota Fanning). The daughter's name: Lucy Diamond. (Get it?!?) This seeming failure opened the door, however, for a flood of impressive Beatles covers, including Eddie Vedder's "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away," Nick Cave's "Let It Be," Stereophonic's "Don't Let Me Down," and Rufus Wainwright's "Across the Universe."
