About the Movie
Oscar-winners Sandra Bullock and Kathy Bates, and country singing star Tim McGraw headline this deeply moving adaptation of the Michael Lewis bestseller about a young man whose size and prowess playing American-style football help him attain an education in school and in life. Newcomer Quinton Aaron portrays the oversized teenager transformed from a homeless street kid to a star athlete through the kindness and charity of a dynamic woman (Bullock--Gravity) who offers him a stable home, a caring family and the opportunity to follow his dreams. Tim McGraw takes the role of the husband who discovers the boy's talent, and Kathy Bates (Misery) plays the young man's strict tutor in this riveting, heartfelt true story directed by John Lee Hancock

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Its superficiality keeps it from being the moving story it could have been.
Fresh: Ohera(TM)s life is meant to make us feel good, and it mostly does. But how good we feel about his story is proportional to how blind wea(TM)re willing to be about how ita(TM)s told.
Fresh: As a fable about the power of giving, it hits pretty hard.
Fresh: However obvious, The Blind Side is touching -- despite its habit of dropping major character notes into the melody without warning.
The Blind Side is a fanatastic movie and great for the whole family. Very inspirational and nothing wrong with it. Sandra Bullock plays a great role as the mother and Tim McGraw as the Father. Quinton Aaron really captures the role as Michael Oher and does a fanatastic job throughout the whole movie. I really suggest this movie for anyone who loves a great story. Enjoy!
This movie is nearly perfect! sandra bullock did an amazing job and deserves best actress. The story is uplifting and inspiring...There isnt a lot of football for people not wanting to see it for that reason, the real message of the story isnt about football at all, but rather that if you give, you will recieve. Excellent film
Best movie would watch a million times will buy when comes out
