    • In 2001, Dakota played the 7-year-old daughter of a single father with a severe mental disability in the movie I am Sam. During her audition, Dakota informed the film director that her aunt "is like Sam," and "everyone just treats her like a normal person." The director of the movie said that this helped Dakota land the role, because it was obvious that she would bring a lot of important compassion and empathy to the character.
