Sandra Bullock ("The Proposal"), Tim McGraw ("Friday Night Lights") and Oscar® winner Kathy Bates ("Misery") star in Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures' "The Blind Side," which depicts the remarkable true story of All-American football star Michael Oher.

Teenager Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) is surviving on his own, virtually homeless, when he is spotted on the street by Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock).  Learning that the young man is one of her daughter¹s classmates, Leigh Anne insists that Michael‹wearing shorts and a t-shirt in the dead of winter‹come out of the cold.  Without a moment¹s hesitation, she invites him to stay at the Tuohy home for the night.  What starts out as a gesture of kindness turns into something more as Michael becomes part of the Tuohy family despite the differences in their backgrounds.

Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome.  And as the family helps Michael fulfill his potential, both on and off the football field, Michael¹s presence in the Tuohys' lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own.

"The Blind Side" is directed by John Lee Hancock ("The Rookie"), who also wrote the screenplay based on the book The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game by Michael Lewis.  Gil Netter, Andrew A. Kosove and Broderick Johnson produced the film with Molly Smith, Erwin Stoff and Timothy M. Bourne serving as executive producers.

Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw star as Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy, and Kathy Bates stars as Michael Oher¹s dedicated tutor, Miss Sue. Quinton Aaron is introduced in the central role of Michael Oher.  The film also stars young actors Lily Collins and Jae Head as the Tuohy children, Collins and S.J., respectively.


Great Movie

My friend I went to see this last night, it was a very heart warming story and the fact that it is based on a true store just makes it that much more enjoyable. I would recommend this movie which is a feel good movie in the hard-time that we are currently in. One person can make a difference.

Great Movie

I went to see this movie last week and I must say I would definitely go see it again with family. It's a genuine heart warming story that reminds us that not everyone has an agenda when it comes to helping someone.

good movie

Unexpectedly good movie! Sandra was fantastic and I am not a huge fan of her films. Definitely a movie to see!

I took my fourteen old son to

I took my fourteen old son to see this movie and he absolutely enjoyed it. I enjoyed it and I thought Sandra Bullock gave an excellent performance. I will rent it on DVD when it comes out (heart warming).

I loved this movie

I thought that this was a great movie. I enjoyed the way they focused on the positives and only touched on the fact that his mother was a drug addict and not sure who Michael's father was.
