I watched “The Blind Side” the other night. As fiction it would be a great story but the fact that it’s a true story makes it even better. It brought tears to my eyes a couple of times.
I never saw Meryl Streep in “Julia” but I heard, from a technical acting perspective, she was better than Sandra Bullock and that’s probably true. Nonetheless, I can see why Bullock beat Streep for the best actress award. It’s hard to explain, but her performance had a power to it that seemed to transcend technical acting. I think she’s still in the negative as far as bad movies / good movies but this one negates at least four of the bad ones.
Below is a real news story on the actual family portrayed in the movie. Don't watch it until you see the movie first… it will ruin some of the surprises.
