The Blind Side

Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock) is a good-hearted, tough as nails Christian woman. When she finds a homeless Michael Oher walking alone in the cold night, she doesn’t hesitate to invite him into her luxurious home. What starts as a temporary offer of help evolves into a long process of change for both Leigh and Michael as he learns about family, football, and belonging and she confronts a world of poverty and depravity she’s never known.

ClearPlay In Action!

ClearPlay filters a few religious exclamations and some obscenities, as well as some sexual dialogue that occurs when Michael returns to his roots in the rough side of town. With filtering in place, this is a good movie for the family.

Will this Open My Eyes?…

Sandra Bullock won a Best Actress award for her role as the plucky, compassionate Leigh, and deservedly so. The story is touching and inspiring, and while it has elements of sports films, the focus remains on the characters, not the game. Based on the life of professional football player Michael Oher, The Blind Side is valuable because it shows the power of family, sacrifice, and good Christian charity in shaping a better world, and movies like that are in tragically short supply. Recommended.
