Here is the “The Blind Side” plot description:

Sandra Bullock (“The Proposal”), Tim McGraw (“Friday Night Lights”) and Oscar winner Kathy Bates (“Misery”) star in Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Blind Side,” which depicts the remarkable true story of all-American football star Michael Oher.

Teenager Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) is surviving on his own – virtually homeless – when he is spotted on the street by Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock). Learning that the young man is one of her daughter’s classmates, Leigh Anne insists that Michael – wearing shorts and a T-shirt in the dead of winter – come out of the cold. Without a moment’s hesitation, she invites him to stay at the Tuohy home for the night.

Despite the differences in their backgrounds, what starts out as a gesture of kindness becomes much more as Michael becomes part of the Tuohy family.

Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome. As the family helps Michael fulfill his potential both on and off the football field, Michael’s presence in the Tuohys’ lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own.

“The Blind Side” trailer can be watched now below.

Field of Dreams

Field of Dreams is by far the best sports tearjerker ever. He did all that work. Folks thought he was crazy. But then he saw his dad at the end… I broke down.
