Transcript of The Blind side

SJ Tuohy
He's the youngest Touhy's child. SJ shows leadership in many scenes of the movie. One of my favorites is when SJ teaches Michael football plays using kitchen items. SJ is a positive autocratic leader because he tells Michael what to do.
Collins Touhy
Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy's daughter. A cheerleader, sorority member and homecoming queen at briar crest.
Sean Tuohy
Rich businessman who has made all his money opening fast-food restaurants throughout Memphis.
Leigh Anne Tuohy
She's once a cheerleader at Ole Miss, is petite, attractive, fiercely protective, and described as a "warrior princess."

The main character in the film, The Blind Side. He is one of the 12 children born to Denise Oher who was an alcohol and cocaine addict. He was placed in foster care at 7 years old and went through various foster homes and periods of homelessness. Michael had a tough past, but turned out to be the successful football player.
She is a loving woman, smart and make decisions to her family. One of the example from movie is when she pick Michael's up and provides him with a home.

Random scenes from the movie
One of my favorite scene in the movie when SJ and Leigh Anne use Michael's 98 percentile for protective instincts.
Do yo have
any place to stay?
Youtube clips
It's Mine
This scene in the film shows Leigh Anne's kindness towards Michael by allowing him a place to stay.
In this scene it shows racism, inspiration and motivation.
Beth: You're changing that boy's life.
Leigh Anne: No. He's changing mine. This quotation shows that not only Michael's life changing. Leigh Anne 's is also changing for the better.

I found this scene very. heartbreaking
Homeless
Don't want to be called "Big Mike."

White Walls

Christmas photo
with Michael Oher
as new family member.

White walls describes that he does not like to listen, specially to the teachers. And that paper also had a written note "everything and anyone is white."
Conclusion
The Blind side is just not about sports film but about the rewards of showing love and support when it is not always accepted or understood by community. I choose The Blind Side because I just found the tittle was so interesting for me and I am not regretting that I pick this inspiring story. Also I learned from The Blind Side was helping one another is an important part of life because one person can change your entire life.
Summary
Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy take in homeless teenage African-American, Michael "Big Mike" Oher. Michael has no idea who his father is and his mother is drug addict. Leigh Anne soon takes charge however, as is her nature, insuring young man has every opportunity to succeed. They not only provide him with a loving home, but hire a tutor to help him improve his grade to point where he would qualify for NCAA Division Athletic Scholarship.
Questions?
Do you think you can be successful by yourself without the help of your family, friends or others?
What position does Michael play?
Where did Michael go to University?
He's very understanding and loving husband to Leigh Anne. A good father and provider for his two children SJ and Collins as well to Michael.
