#98 DZP - the Blind Side

#98: Watch 26 movies I've never seen starting with each letter of the Alphabet
Now I got my "B" done! I finally watched The Blind Side!

Based on the true story of Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy who take in a homeless teenage African-American, Michael "Big Mike" Oher. Michael has no idea who is father is and his mother is a crack head. Michael has had little formal education and few skills to help him learn. Leigh Anne soon takes charge however, as is her nature, ensuring that the young man has every opportunity to succeed. When he expresses an interest in football, she goes all out to help him, including giving the coach a few ideas on how best to use Michael's skills. They not only provide him with a loving home, but hire a tutor to help him improve his grades to the point where he would qualify for an NCAA Division I athletic scholarship. Michael Oher was the first-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens in the 2009 NFL draft.

I can't tell you how much I love this movie! Sandra Bullock deserved all those awards for her performance. You really feel for Mike Oher and the troubles he's been through. And you also feel great inside for the fortune and luck that came from the Tuohys. Now of course the favorite characters are Leigh Anne (Sandra Bullock) and Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), but I also loved Sean "SJ" Jr. (Jae Head). That little boy was hillarious and loved his "Brother" Michael from the moment he met him. This warm-hearted movie made me cry happy tears!
