Theater Thursday

Since I'm actually in Memphis, TN this week for Elvis Week, I thought of doing an Elvis movie but I'll explain it all.... This week's featured Theater Thursday movie is based on a true story, The Blind Side.
Can you believe I had not seen this movie till last week? Well believe it because it's true. I saw it and instantly loved it. I want to watch it again! 

The Blind Side is based on the true events of Michael Oher. As a boy Michael grew up in a rough environment. Never knowing his father, his mother addicted to drugs and his brother being separated from him and eventually becoming homeless. 

When Leigh Ann Tuohy and her family came into Michael's life she completely changed it for the better. Giving him shelter for the night she saw the great spirit in Michael and knew that he was a kind, young man. The feeling was mutual and Michael loved the Tuohy family. 

Michael improved his grades, learned how to play the game of football and begins to be courted by tons of colleges to play football. Michael later went on to play professional football and it all began in high school after meeting the Tuohy family. 

It's an amazing story and if you haven't seen it, go get it! Sandra Bullock completely deserved the Oscar she won for this performance.

I rented this movie & actually kept it for like 5 days trying to will myself to watch it. I never did. Not because I didnt think I'd like it but because I knew it was tear jerker, haha.

One day...
