Free Movie Screening: The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock

by Migdalia Rivera

The Blind Side, based  on a true story, is an inspirational movie that demonstrates how one person can change a life. It features Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw, Quinton Aaron and many more!

Below is a brief synopsis I was able to obtain from IMDb.

A poor, oversized and under-educated teenager is recruited by a major college football program where he is groomed into an athletically and academically successful NFL prospect. Based on Michael Lewis’ book, “The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game.” Written by IMDb editor

“The Blind Side” depicts the remarkable true story of Michael Oher, a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home, taken in by the Touhys, a well-to-do white family who help him fulfill his potential. At the same time, Oher’s presence in the Touhys’ lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own. Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome. As a football player and student, Oher works hard and, with the help of his coaches and adopted family, becomes an All-American offensive left tackle. In the latest chapter of his inspiring story, Oher was a First Round draft pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, selected by the Baltimore Ravens. The Touhys were there to share the moment with him.

We’ve seen the trailer for this movie a couple of times. I think it’s going to be a “must see”. It looks like a really inspirational story and I love Sandra Bullock!
