Faith and Family Film Review: The Blind Side

Faith and Family Film Review: The Blind Side,
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting.

The Blind Side —Inspirational family drama, based on real events, in which a wealthy white couple (Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw) in Memphis, Tenn., offer shelter to a homeless black student (Quinton Aaron) from their children’s (Lily Collins and Jae Head) school and, as he becomes an increasingly integral part of their clan, help him to hone his football skills while also hiring a determined tutor (Kathy Bates) to raise his academic standing. Driven by Bullock’s field-sweeping performance as the feisty, religiously motivated adoptive mother, writer-director John Lee Hancock’s unapologetically Christian tale of human solidarity across racial and class divides, adapted from Michael Lewis’ 2006 best-seller “The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game,” is funny, shrewd and ultimately uplifting. Brief nongraphic marital lovemaking, at least one profanity, a few sexual and drug references, a half-dozen crass terms.  A-III — adults. (PG-13) 2009. Full Review of the Blind Side. Please visit.
