Thumbs Up for 'The Blind Side'

Blind Side coverMy family and I went to see ‘The Blind Side’ with Sandra Bullock this past weekend. It is based on a true story about a homeless young man who is taken in by a family and becomes a football player. The book that the movie is based upon, The Blindside:  Evolution of a Game, is available through the library. The movie is rated PG-13 and it was one that we all enjoyed.
