A Touchdown for "The Blind Side"




This movie is a story about Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), a teenager surviving on his own after being passed on to different foster parents. One night Mike came into a chance encounter with Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock) and her family while walking on a cold street not far from school where Mike and Leigh Anne's kids attend. Wearing an inappropriate clothes out in the cold and knowing that Mike don't have any place to go, Leigh Anne invited him to stay in their house. Michael stayed at the Touhy residence for a night but in the morning he immediately left. But as Mike is living the gates of the mansion, Leigh came running asking him to stay and join them for the Thanksgiving feast. From that day on, Mike didn't left the house of the Touhy's and became very close to Leigh Anne and to her son SJ (Jae head). As the days go by, Leigh Anne just noticed that her life is slowly changing and Michael is the key.



Written and directed by John Lee hancock and based on the 2006 book The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game by Michael Lewis tells the remarkable true story of the All American Football star Michael Oher, an offensive lineman who plays for the Baltimore Ravens of the NFL. The film follows Oher from his deprived upbringing, through his years as a student at Wingate Christian School, his adoption by Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, and on to the days where he is considered as one of the most Highly sought-after player in college football.



The story is well written.  Actors did a pretty good job too specially Quinton Aaron who plays Michael.  Despite being a newcomer, he got his charisma that can connect to audience.  The audience definitely feels his emotions on the film and that is not an easy task for an actor.  On the other hand Sandra Bullock had delivered indeed an award worthy performance on this movie by proving her versatility where she can do comedy and drama at the same time without being awkward.  She is an epitome of a contemporary actress of her time and deserved the Golden Globe Award that she recently received.



The Blind Side is not a boo hu hu hu movie.  No mellow drama just like what people expect from this kind of film.  The movie is good because it is inspirational.  It shows how two people help each other to improve their own selves and change for the better.  The movie also promotes the significance of family, education and integrity.



The movie is highly recommended to all who wants to be inspired. Watch The Blind Side that opens today on all cinemas nationwide. Distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
