THE BLIND SIDE
Movie Review

‘The Blind Side’ is the real life story about Micheal Oher, an Afro-American football player and his struggles from being an abandoned kid growing up in a foster home to a NFL (National Football League) player after being adopted by the family, the Touhys, who were white skinned Americans.

What makes ‘The Blind Side’ such a compelling story is the fact that it tells the true life story of a boy with little or no prospects. It is a film about human relationships, the need to reach out to the ones less fortunate, but most importantly, it's a film about believing in oneself and following one’s convictions even when the whole world might be against you.
One only has to see the movie and absorb as well as digest

According to me, this is a very stereotypical behavior of people. Just because he’s a black, it does not mean that he has a questionable character and means harm to the whites. Many people often say that they do not practice racism but only a quarter of them are saying the truth. Does the skin colour really define a person’s character??? Who are we to jugde the people? Don’t actions speak louder? So why cant we judge them on their actions rather than their appearance?? It is safe to say that the movie though purely intent on emotional significance, also has social relevance.

The teacher interpreted his behaviour correctly after reading his note which basically claimed that “ He saw white everwhere and he does not understand what his teachers are saying. He has never done homework before.”
The essay written by Michael to improve his CGPA expressed his feelings aptly. It was this essay that made his teachers understand what was his thought process. This essay had a very deep meaning.
“Courage is a hard thing to figure. You can have courage based on a dumb idea or a mistake, but you’re not supposed to question adults, or your coach, or your teacher because they make the rules. Maybe they know best but maybe they don’t.
It all depends on who you are, where you come from. Didn’t at least one of the six hundred guys think about giving up and joining with the other side?
