Trailer: The Blind Side

posted by Nell Minow

I know, I know, it has the inevitable “I got more from him than he ever got from me” scene and I am always cautious about “mighty whitey” (white person transforms the life of a person of color) and “magical Negro” (person of color transforms the life of a white person) movies. But there is something unmistakeably touching about this trailer and I am looking forward to the movie.

    I think you were right the first time. It’s hokey as can be and more than a little bit racist. I think I’ll pass.

    I share your skepticism, Greg, but I am going to give it a try. If I find it condescending or in any way insensitive, I’ll make that clear in my review.
