The Blind Side

On Wednesday night Bo and I went see The Blind Side. Bo's choice for his Birthday, but I would have also choosen this movie if I had choosen. There were only about 10 people in the theater, but this was an odd night to go see a movie. Bo and I both really enjoyed it, and if movies weren't $18.50 for two people to go see one, we probable would go again. I will definitely buy this when it comes out on DVD.
This movie made me cry, it me laugh, and it made me think about how amazing this family actually was. In so many ways it made me think about what I am doing to help out another, and could I or would I ever be brave enough to take in some one that I know needed me to help them. Lee Ann wasn't just helping someone by handing over a check. She changed her life to help another individual.
Sandra Bullock is one of my favorite actress and she did a great job. Tim McCraw was also very convincing as the husband. But there was one who stole the show: Jae Head, who plays S.J., was just wonderful and handled every scene he was in with an amazing ability to act.
I have to say as a fan of the SEC it was fun to see all the coaches in this movie even if they were no longer at the school that they were recruiting for in the movie. In some ways that would seem really odd to me.
Michael Oher must be a very special person to have changed so many peoples lives not only the Tuohy's, but also those individuals at his school.

I so want to see this, but I've already seen my one movie for the year (New Moon). Can't wait until it comes out on DVD! :)
