Taken in by a well-to-do family and offered a second chance at life, a homeless teen grows to become the star athlete projected to be the first pick at the NFL draft in this sports-themed comedy drama inspired by author Michael Lewis' best-seller The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game. Michael Oher was living on the streets when he was welcomed into the home of a conservative suburban family, but over time he matured into a talented athlete. As the NFL draft approaches, fans and sports radio personalities alike speculate that Oher will be the hottest pick of the year. Sandra Bullock stars in a film written and directed by John Lee Hancock (The Rookie, The Alamo).~Jason Buchanan

I love this story and movie, which was played very well by every character. Sandra Bullock is nice in this movie, but most amazing things were each family member showed compassion, love, kindness and tolerance. Simply one person could show heart warming attitude by herself, but without family member's support and cooperation, it would be difficult to keep acting as she likes. In this movie, husband, daughter and son, all of them showed generous, kind, compassionate attitude toward huge black boy, encouraged by mother Sandra Bullock. Boy was amazing. But I believe without husband's support and trust to his wife, mother Sandra could not have acted as she did in the movie. Usually In real life, it is difficult to act as mother Sandra acted in this movie. We have compassion, love, tolerance etc... but if we live with other family member, it would be difficult to act as we wish. I can think of other memorable, heart warming, beautiful real story told by Laura Schroff & Alex Tresniowski "An Invisible Thread". But she lived alone, so she could behave as she liked. So, important thing we learn in this movie is that this movie shows not only mother Sandra's great attitude, but also her family members' compassionate, kind, cooperative, understanding attitude. Without family member's cooperation and understanding, good will might have not grown beautiful as was shown in this movie. Anyway, this was truly heart warming, good movie and I wanted to keep it for myself.
Omg I love this movie the movie The Blindside really touched my heart how Sean Tuohy & Leann Tuohy took in Michael Oher and took care of him and gave him a place to stay and it touched me when he said he never had a bed before that broke my heart and made me cry very touching movie its a must see
