The Blind Side
Based on the extraordinary true story
Oversized African American Michael Oher, the teen from across the tracks and a broken home, has nowhere to sleep at age 16. Taken in by an affluent Memphis couple, Leigh Anne and Sean, Michael embarks on a remarkable rise to play for the NFL.

Review In A Nutshell:
I am actually going to keep this review in a size of a nutshell since it is already around 8:30 pm, and to review at this time usually leads me to a series of yawns that further extends the writing process. John Lee Hancock, the film’s director, has taken an inspiring subject, a boy, Michael Oher, who has escaped the tragedies of his past and culture, finding solace under the roof and care of a sympathetic middle class Caucasian woman, Leigh Anne Tuohy, and her family. Michael’s journey is familiar, but contains the potential to raise strong points of social class and blind, thoughtful charity. Leigh was a woman who has finally seen the struggling conditions…
So sentimental and manipulative that it hurts.
At least it had some nice cinematography.
I should've just watched the Lily Collins clips on Youtube
A stirring drama that explores the dangers of affirmative action, Christian values, obesity and being sassy
It's attempts at emotional manipulation are bordering on vulgar. True story? Sure, stereotypes are based on truth as well, but they're always shallow representations of reality. This film is nothing more than that, something even Bullock's slightly less mediocre performance than normal can save.
"The Blind Side" is a straightforward film about family and football with its focus more heavily placed on the former. Moving without being maudlin, the film has tons of warmth and heart; it's very much worth seeing.
One of the few movies that deserved the oscar that it won..
I bet this is the closest Hancock has ever been to interacting with a black person.
Again a nice sunday feel good movie. When the movie started with some actual NFL footage I allready knew it had to be based on a real life story. Never knew the story behind Michael Oher who was in the 2012 super bowl winning team tho! After the movie I did some research and funny how he thinks the movie actually had some bad influence on his carreer.
Sandra Bullock won an Oscar for this? Totally wrong. I mean, her performance is not bad but it's not her best for sure. The film is ok I guess.
Amazing Movie. This is one of my favorites :). Such an underdog story, great casting, acting, etc. I can remember back to 2009 ( MY FIRST PG13 Movie!!!)when I first saw this and kept watching this over and over to certain scenes. Really melts my heart.
BUT COME ON SANDRA BULLOCK ENOUGH WITH THE PENIS JOKES THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
Ever since someone pointed to me how americans always have the story about a savior white person coming to help the "lesser" ethnic person I became allergic to these sort of stories. From Pocahontas to The Help it's always the white person "empowering" the black one. There is actually a parodic video how Straight Outta Compton should have been written from a position of the white manager if they wanted to be appreciated by the Academy. Anyway so right from the start I knew this movie would have to blow me away to actually like it.
This is a movie about a black homeless kid and yet the entire movie seems it could be named How White People React to…
An inspiring sports movie with nice An inspiring sports movie with nice cinematography.
A great Sandra Bullock film she deserved the best actress and one of the best sports movie ever.
Zeemzoete maar wonderlijke film over hoe ongelofelijk goed en schoon een mens kan zijn.
Sandra Bullock won meer dan terecht een oscar voor deze rol, wat een acteerprestatie zet ze hier neer.
