The Blind Side is the story of Michael Oher‘s road to success. He begins as a boy who is homeless, and not sure about a future, and ends with a dignified young man who becomes a Pro- Football player. The movie outlines his life as a Christian family takes him in. The story takes place in the Deep South, and the story is that of accomplishing the American Dream. Michael Oher lives his life in parasympathetic mode. He is very reserved, and lives his life by forgetting the past. Leigh Anne Tuohy who is quite opposite of Michael, she is a true southern lady who is loud and tells her exact opinion; she also adopts the homeless Michael into her extravagant home. Leigh Anne sees the boy called Big Mike (undoubtedly because of his BMI that must be greater than 35 and 6 foot 5 inch frame) and turns him into Michael. Her son S.J. falls in love with his new brother, Michael, and Michael falls in love with as well. This love is evident throughout the movie. Michael only begins to play football

Unformatted text preview: to his full ability when Leigh Anne (“Momma”) puts herself and S.J. in place of Michael’s teammates in his mind, telling him he has to protect his “family”.

It also proves that people can really be unselfish in life, and that there is still good in our country....
