"The Blind Side" depicts the story of Michael Oher, a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home, taken in by the Touhys, a well-to-do white family who help him fulfill his potential. At the same time, Oher's presence in the Touhys' lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own. Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome. As a football player and student, Oher works hard and, with the help of his coaches and adopted family, becomes an All-American offensive left tackle.
I watched this movie last night with my family. The only ones not crying were my brother and sister's boyfriend. You can't help but shed a couple tears for Michael Oher and the situation that is his life. He overcame (with the help of the Touhy family) so many obstacles in his life to become an player in the NFL with a 5 year 15 million dollar contract! I definitely recommend everyone go see the movie. Sandra Bullock nails it as the tough Leigh Anne Touhy the whole movie your rooting for her as she is one of the only ones who has ever cared for Oher. The movie is so inspirational and really goes to show you you can do whatever you want and be whoever you want. Even sitting here talking about the movie is making me tear GO SEE IT! GO GO GO!
