The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock

The Blind Side is really a fabulous film about love in action. I can't recommend it enough!

The film is based on the book of the same name and the true story of Michael Oher, who was a First Round draft pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, selected by the Baltimore Ravens. Sandra Bullock plays Leah Anne Touhy, who took him in as a young boy (a very big young boy) who had been kicked onto the streets of Memphis. The life transformation in his life and that of the Touhy family is profound and far-reaching.

There are some elements parents might need to talk through with younger kids, but, as the rating suggests, this is for kids as young as 13.

I got to meet Quinton Aaron, who plays Michael Oher, at The Faith Film Festival in Brooklyn. There was no need to CGI his size, and he didn't need to put on a gentle spirit. He calmly and peacefully confirmed what I'd read about him being on the verge of being homeless just before he was cast in the film.
