The Blind Side

Mother, my cousin Emily, and I went to see The Blind Side yesterday. It was so good! The tears started early and kept escaping down my cheeks periodically throughout the movie. All the actors did a great job. Sandra Bullock nailed the personality and look of Leigh Ann Tuohy. Quentin Aaron, Tim McGraw, Jae Head, and Lily Collins were good as Michael Oher, Sean Tuohy, SJ (the son), and Collins (the daughter). It was an inspiring, feel-good, true story about Baltimore Ravens tackle Michael Oher and his adopted family in Memphis.

From the Movie

Real Family


I laughed when Leigh Ann told him even if he went to the University of Tennessee, which she hates along with MikeinBama, that she would attend every game but would never wear that gaudy orange. I went to UT and did wear it but know what she means. Not a flattering color. Sean and Leigh Ann are die-hard Ole Miss fans and even have a condo in Oxford where they stay during games. We really did enjoy this movie.

This will be the next movie I go to see. He played last night on T.V. and they showed his family. It was so touching.
P.S. I went to see Precious again last night with Number 9. She was numb from the heartache.

I want to see Precious, too. It will probably reduce me to a puddle.

Glad to hear you enjoyed this film. I want to see it too, but Spouse keeps nay-saying. He thinks it will be cliche.
