The Blind Side (2009)

The Blind Side is based on the 2006 book The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game by Michael Lewis. It’s the  story of Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), a homeless kid living on the street is taken in by the Touhys, a well off family.  Sandra Bullock plays Leigh Anne Tuohy and Tim McGraw is Sean Tuohy.

While the movie is about a football player, it’s not a football movie. It’s a story about family and personal courage. The acting, story and pace of this movie all click to make a very good movie.
