The Blind Side
Category – Drama – Motivation and Social awareness; Rating – 3.5 ; Comment – True story of a caring strong woman
This movie is based on the real story of the American football player Michael Oher. The crucial role played by a strong woman in the life of a homeless, traumatized young African American boy makes this an inspiring story – especially the way the boy transforms into a confident individual. I can imagine the strength of the woman – one which can transform and touch the life of other living beings. The entire movie has multiple scenes and dialogues which slowly builds on the story and the way how the African American boy becomes as part of the American family.
Dialogues were well thought – when they go to shop for a dress and the boy gets confused, the lady makes a comment – ” before you choose something, ask yourself IS THIS ME? ” – great message.
Sandra Bullock, who played the lead role got Academy award for her role. The film itself has got multiple awards and many accolades. A good watch and inspiring story – showcases the strong side of maternal instincts and family values.
