The Blind Side Movie Review: A Shot at Oscars?

The Blind Side, starring Sandra BullockIn The Blind Side, Sandra Bullock pulls off her second box office feat of the year and writer/director John Lee Hancock exceeds expectations with one of the most satisfying drama-comedies of the year. The movie, about the story of NFL football player Michael Oher, is one the entire family can enjoy, even if none are fans of the sport.

Bullock stars as – no, not Michael Oher – Leigh Anne Tuohy, a platinum blonde who cares a little too much about people. When she sees “Big Mike” (Quinton Aaron) walking outside in a T-shirt in sub-freezing temperatures with no place to go, she feels obliged to take him in and give him some food. But what starts out as one night of compassion turns into a much longer stay, to where Michael becomes a part of the family. Aided by his new family, Michael learns how to play football and goes on to become one of the most sought-after players by colleges and, eventually, the NFL.
