Michael Oher, a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home, is 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.
This is one of my favorite movies. Sandra Bullock is amazing in it, of course, she plays the part perfectly. The film, based on a true story, is very moving and really gets you. I've watched it so many times now, it just keeps getting better.
I bought this for my son & his entire family. Can't go wrong with an Academy Award Winner. It's a no-brainer for gift-giving. Don't have to worry about the language used, no nudity, no drugs, no sex. A perfect movie for the family, especially for a grandma to give!
