DVD Giveaway: The Blind Side

posted by Nell Minow

One of the biggest critical and box office successes of last year is The Blind Side, the heartwarming real-life story of professional football player Michael Oher, who has a homeless black teenager was adopted by a wealthy white family. Sandra Bullock’s Oscar-winning performance as Leigh Anne Touhy is outstanding but everyone in the cast, including Tim McGraw as her husband Sean and Quinton Aaron as Oher.

I have two copies to give away! Please send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Blind Side” in the subject line, and tell me what you like best about the movie. The first two will win the DVD.

    I loved the way Sandra Bullock was able to maintain her “control” of situation, yet also portray emotional swings when presented with unacceptable, “shocking”, or very emotional information. For example when Michael told her he’d never slept in a bed before..how she kept her cool but you could see the pain in her face….or when she asked Michael if he would like to be part of their family and Michael told her he already thought he was. Her grace in the face of “real life” was admirable and a good example.

    The best part was when Michael sat down at the dining room table for Thanksgiving dinner. It brought the whole family together in a new way.

    A great movie the whole family could enjoy. I love how these people opened their hearts and home to Michael. More people should be like that in todays world by being more kind and compassionate.

  • Dwight

    I’ve not seen the movie. I have an extensive collection of good movies on DVD and VHS. The ones I mostly prefer to keep are the true stories and the musicals. I’d like to add The Blind Side to my collection.
