The Blind Side is an amazing movie directed by John Lee Hancock, written by Michael Lewis!! Casting Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw, Quinton Aaron, Jae Head, and Lilly Collins!!! This movie is based on a true story. This movie is about a normal family who takes in a African American boy named Michael Other. Let me tell you he is like no other. This is where our story begins. Michael is a 17 year old boy who grew up in a not so nice neighborhood. His mother was a druggy, and Michael ran away from home. Michael has been in and out of foster homes. Michael had no schooling, and then one day luckily got into a christen school. When walking home from school in a tee shirt in under freezing weather Sandra [ The Mom] points out that him and stops the car. She asks S.J. who he is and S.J says Big Mike [His nickname]. Mom tells him to get into the car and that is how it all starts!!! Big Mike spends the night at there house and a few nights after. Big Mike is struggling in school and only one teacher believes in him. She says underneath all that is a brain and a heart. Big Mikes gets a tutor and brings up his grades. One night the mom sees S.J and Big Mike are shooting around, Big Mike is making all the shoots and the mom watches and then decides she is going to make Big Mike try sports. Big Mike turns out to be a superstar at football. S.J is training Big Mike and working him every morning. Tryouts for the Football team are happening and Big Mike made it. His team wins a lot of games and Big Mike is amazing and making all of his blocks. His so good that he is getting scholarship calls from the collage teams!!! My favorite part of this story is at one of Big Mikes practices when the mom comes to to Mike and says ''You listen to me now this team is your family and you protect your family''.This is my all time favorite movie ever is really inspirational and uplifting!! I would recommend this movie to sports fans and anyone who loves heart felt movies!! Have an AWESOME time watching this movie!!!
