The Blind Side - film discussion

The Blind Side tells the true story of Michael Oher, a homeless, black teenager, adopted by a rich, white family and launched on a flight path to a top American football career. While the film explores Michael’s broken background and healing process after a lifetime of emotional deprivation, the story is at least as much about the journey the Tuohys take. Michael’s presence in their lives challenges the entire family about their fears and prejudices.

Themes: risky love, prejudice, motives, integrity, career choices.

Cautions: Contains infrequent moderate violence, language and sex references.
