Directed by John Lee Hancock
I have never seen this movie. Here is my recap and review.
Based on the Extraordinary True Story!
My favorite thing about movies based on Extraordinary True Stories is that they condense months, years or even decades into just two easily-digestible hours. This is accomplished mostly by leaving out anything "boring" or "true". Characters and situations are transmogrified to the point where they are unrecognizable to the participants in the events themselves. Genius.
The Blind Side does all of the above tremendously well.
Sandra Bullock plays a Successful Older Blonde Small White Woman. Newcomer
Recommended for fans of helmets, binoculars and heroic blondes.
