The Blind Side - Refreshing!



In the time of Sci-Fi, thrillers and technologically superb cinema, The Blind Side Starring Sandra Bullock and Quinton Aaron gives us a simple, true story from our backyard and yet does not fail to amaze and astound the audiences. The film is based on a true story. It is a story of one colored boy, adopted by a white woman and how this change, changes his life forever and for the better. Quinton plays Michael Oher, and boy does he make an impression. He simply makes you cry with his silence and also has the ability to lighten up the screen with a huge, lovely smile. The support cast is also well casted and have acted wonderfully well, with Tim McGraw playing the all loving hubby to perfection.
The movie as a story is amazing and has great flow, but to put the cherry on top Sandra Bullock pulls out an Oscar winning performance no one would have expected of her ever! She is amazing, with nothing over the top and nothing exceptional. The fact that she plays such a simple, loving, caring and benevolent person with such an amazing ease and at not a single point making it unbelievable is amazing. The feeling she gives when at a couple of instances in the movie she is on the verge of crying, gives one the goosebumps!























 I would like to recommend The Blind Side to everyone, especially those who have lost faith in the good of this world and the importance of family.
