Mini Review - The Blind Side

The Blind Side (out Feb 25) is based on a true story. A wealthy family takes in a homeless teenager and helps him with studies. When they realise his potential on the football field, doors start opening and a lucrative college scholarship beckons. Sandra Bullock has never been better. I also like the screenplay which doesn't get bogged down with drama. It's a happy, feel-good crowd pleaser. Grade: A-.
