“The Blind Side” is based on the true story of NFL star, Michael Oher, of the Baltimore Ravens. Once homeless and abandoned, Oher was taken in by the Tuohy family who helped Oher live to his full potential. Sandra Bullock plays Leigh Anne Tuohy, the matriarch of the family, and in my opinion this was one of Bullock’s best performances to date. Her performance in this film is already getting some Oscar Buzz as well as a Golden Globe nomination. This role is really unlike anything Bullock has ever done in the past. Bullock has always been a great comedic actress, but this role really has shown another side to Bullock’s acting chops. Bullock’s portrayal of Mrs. Tuohy had such a great quiet strength that really transcended the screen which was really relatable. Watch the trailer here.
