Faith movie, The Blind Side, is creating miracles off screen

The Blind Side movie is making powerful impact on audience and actress Sandra Bullock
By Beaver Believer,

The miracle movie of the year is the film The Blind Side — a true life underdog story filled with heroic and spiritual themes.  The story itself is a miracle.  Veteran NBC Sports host, Cris Collinsworth, said this week it was one of the greatest sports stories he has ever witnessed.  The movie has been a surprise hit grossing $34 million in the first week — a blockbuster return for a such a small film.  Something amazing happened in the second week.   Audiences traditionally drop 50% in the second week, but instead of losing audiences the film actually gained, as ticket sales it surged 18% higher.   At the same time the Twilight craze movie, New Moon, dropped 70% during the same second week.  This rare second wind is a direct result of the movie having widespread emotional impact among movie goers who are pushing their friends to see it.

The story has even made a positive Christian impression with actress Sandra Bullock who played the real-life devout Christian woman, Leigh Anne Tuohy, who helped turn an abandoned teen into a football star.  Here is what Bullock said about Leigh Anne Touhy to the Associated Press, “She was so open and honest and forthright, and I said, wow, I finally met someone who practices but doesn’t preach.  Whereas…before I was like, do not give me a lecture on how to live my life when I know I’m a pretty decent human being, “I might not go to church everyday, but I know I do the right thing or try to. You’re going to church and you’re still sleeping around on your wife…how are you better than I am? So I finally met people who walk the walk.”

I watched the movie this weekend and was deeply touched.  This is a film worth spreading the word about.
