The Blind Side: Buy This Movie!

24 Mar husband and I saw The Blind Side months ago in theaters, and we’ve loved it ever since.  We cheered when Sandra Bullock won the Academy Award for Best Actress, because she deserved it for her amazing performance in this family-friendly, inspirational movie.

The Blind Side (if for some reason you don’t already know) is based on the true story of Michael Oher, a young man who overcame incredible obstacles to become an NFL football player.  While the movie takes artistic license with his true story, the essentials are true: Michael is a boy who has no family.  His mother is addicted to drugs, and has never been a role model or provider for him.  He is taken in by the Tuohy family, is accepted in to a Christian school, and becomes a football star.

This is a must-see inspirational story for any family!  It’s rare to find a film that adults can sit down and watch with children, but this is one of those movies.  Check it out!
