I actually suspected, after reading Megan Basham's review (below), the filmThe Blind Side would always be worth discovering. So my family and i went this weekend, and were really blindsided by a film abundantly rich in their humanity and unabashedly Christian in its underpinnings -- a modern day day object lesson in Luke 10: 25-37 and Matthew 25: 31-47. Not just that, it's a true story.
Read the summary of the plan below. What that won't let you know is that Sandra Bullock (commanding and authentic, in what critic Elias Savada referred to as " Her finest performance. Ever. " ) and Quinton Aaron (in an appropriately modest but surprisingly subtle and nuanced performance) will grab your cardiovascular system away. There are several Kleenex moments, but this kind of cinematic stew has been very well seasoned having its fair share of laugh-out-loud joy as well. Its moderate Metacritic rating shows the fact that it was admired simply by those who agree to (and frequently approve of) the film's message and intent, whilst it was panned by individuals (often mainstream) critics who have feel every film need to address " pervasive racism in America" every time a Dark-colored actor looks in a major role (e. g., "[The movie] begs off any serious investigation of race. " or " This sports activities drama by no means strays in the surface, under no circumstances exploring more complex socioeconomic and racial issues. " ). The film's appropriate race-blind perspective is summed up brilliantly simply by Director Ruben Lee Hancock: " Leigh Anne Touhy didn't quit that car to pick up that kid as they was African-American. She ended that car to pick up that kid as they was cool. " In its third weekend, The Blind Side did what couple of movies perform –- it has climbed to the most notable spot in the box business office rankings after two week-ends in second place. Clearly, news with the innate magnificence, charm, and inspiration of this film is usually spreading. Do yourself a favor and take your loved ones to see that.
