You are your own salvation
The Blind Side review
The Blind Side is my first movie that I saw with only the aid ofEnglishsubtitles. At first I doubted that whether I could understand this film completely , however, I found that I could follow the plot of it in the course of watching , which gave me a sort of confidence for my English study.
Back to the movie, it tells the story of Michael Oher, a homeless and traumatized boy who became an All American football player and first round NFL draft pick with the help of a caring woman and her family. And this film was adapted from original book : The Blind Side: Evolution of the Game , which is also a real thing that happened . Sandra Bullock won the 82th Oscar for best actress as the main actress of this movie.
To be honest , I wasn’t so moved by how Michael was adopted by that kind family and how he became a student of University of Mississippi with the help of Tuohy family in the first place. I was fascinated by this rich ,kind and generous family and very curious the love story behind the two masters of it . Anne Tuohy is very mighty woman but has a very devoted husband . I love the way he stared at Anne ，which is full of understanding and support. He knew that what inside in his wife are determination and pure kindness . Anne also know his husband and a good grasp of degree of being tough and might .
At the end of movie, I was kind of aware that why Tuohy family fostered Michael : he always cherishes the love for the original mother ; he can realize the evil of violence; he protects his adoptive family members; and most important of all , he know the blind side of his life .He isn’t like other poor black kids who spoil their sport talents and indulge in gangs .
Anne gain a sense of accomplishment and happiness by helping Michael find his right path towards life . Michael get help and support from Tuohy family because of his kindness and persistence. Just like the song singing in the end : chances are only what we make them . We are our own salvation .
