Movie Preview: Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side


I think it's possible to recognize that something (say, a trailer) has been created to manipulate your feelings and force you to cry, and to still cry anyway. This is what watching the trailer for The Blind Side was all about for me. The movie is based on a book by Michael Lewis which, as I recall from reading it a while ago, focuses a great deal on technical football analysis. Still, Lewis also weaves in the story of the remarkable left tackle Michael Oher, who was a homeless kid in Memphis until he was taken in by a wealthy white family. Soon after, his size and impressive abilities on the football field brought him attention — and recruitment battles — from college coaches. The movie centers on Oher's (played by Quinton Aaron) story, with Sandra Bullock in the role of the mother who takes him in.

I love watching Sandra Bullock and still, I was so engrossed in this trailer that I'd forgotten who she was by the end of it. It may turn out to be a predictable, sentimental film but I'm going to watch it nonetheless. What do you think?

The Blind Side opens Nov. 20. To check out the trailer,
