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.
5 stars through and through!
I cried most of this movie, despite trying to ignore watching it. It was so touching and well done. I honestly did not buy Sandra Bullock playing a redneck when I saw the previews, but when I watched it I quickly realized she was the perfect person for the part. She was so believable in this role, probably one of the only believable roles she's ever played in my opinion.
This true story just touches your heart, and the cast all did such a wonderful job portraying their real-life counterparts.
Despite my hatred for all things sappy, I have no choice but to give this movie 5 stars because it was just that good.
