The Blind Side

One of the many Christmas gifts we received from my husband's relatives was a couple of movie card to Cobb's Theater at Merritt Square Mall. Together with Orville, Mary, Ed, Annette, my husband and I went to see the movie "The Blind Side" last night. It was really a good movie, especially because it is about Football, which my husband and his family are so fond of.

The movie is based on extra ordinary true story of life of Michael Oher, a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home, is 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.

The main casts of the movie are Sandra Bullock (which we both are fond of), Tim McGraw and Quinton Aaron. This movie is directed and written by John Lee Hancock. This is an ideal movie for the entire family.
