And the Tuohys have found something just as life-changing: a beloved new son and brother. This real-life story of family and of Michael’s growth into a blue-chip football star will have you cheering with its mix of gridiron action and heartwarming emotion. Share the remarkable journey of the college All-American and first-round NFL draft pick who was a winner before he ever stepped onto the playing field.]]>

The story is well-told and inspiring. Sandra Bullock is particularly good as the mother, Leigh Anne Tuohy. Bullock won the Academy Award for Best Actress, as well as the Critic's Choice, Golden Globe, Screen Actors' Guild and People's Choice awards. Ironically, Bullock had turned down the role three times because of her concerns about playing a devout Christian. After accepting the role, she almost quit a couple of weeks into filming, because she thought her acting was doing an injustice to Tuohy. Apparently not!
The blu-ray transfer is great. Visuals and audio are both strong. The disc contains interviews with Michael Oher, Aaron Quinton (who played Oher), Leigh Anne Tuohy and Sandra Bullock. Parental Advisory: While the movie does feature one scene of violence and a couple of allusions to sex and drugs, it is suitable for family viewing. The Tuohys are commendable for their care of Michael. The power of their example outweighs a couple of minor negative elements that might necessitate a word of explanation for very small children.
One goof in the film. Above the gate at the Christian school, is an inscription that says, "With man this is possible, but with God all things are possible." This is a misquotation from Matthew 19:26, which says, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Apart from this, the movie makers handled the Christian aspects of the film quite well.
I highly recommend The Blind Side. While it does take some liberties with the true story of Michael Oher, it nevertheless gets the basic story right. The result is heart-warming.
Please know this sale only includes the single disc Blu-Rayn, NO DVD will be included. The digital copy is only valid if you have an Ultraviolet account, our code was long expired. We purchased the Blind Side for the Blu-Ray only, the description is inaccurate. Daniel
Sandra Bullock plays Leigh Anne Touhy, a strong-willed woman who pulls Michael into her family. Sometime later when a friend asks whether she is changing Michael's life, she answered "No, he's changing ours."
When asked about "The Blind Side" Michael replied that "It's pretty much all true, except that Mrs. Touhy didn't teach him how to play football, he already knew how to do that."
This is a heart-warming tale of what's best about the human spirit - the ability and willingness to reach out to another person in need and provide what they need. In this case, love, stability, and support.
This movie, based on fact, is a fantastic movie, including elements of drama, comedy, tragedy, and triumph.
