The Blind Side is an American film about a homeless and traumatised boy who is taken in by a caring woman and her family, and with their help, he manages to work his way towards his goal of being an American football player in the NFL.

This was a fascinating film. I thought that the true story was presented in a fantastically intriguing and entertaining way throughout.

Despite being initially sad, the story picked up fantastically, and it just became incredibly inspiring to watch in my opinion, and for the rest of the way, the whole thing was just a superb joy to watch.

The way in which this film was made to be extremely emotional helped massively also in being able to watch this film with a clear side to be on, and which characters to support all the way through, however despite all of the emotion and inspiration going on in the film, I thought that the slightly more comedic and ‘fun’ elements to it made it even more pleasurable to watch.

Overall, then, I’ll give this a 7.8, because it was interesting, entertaining, emotional, and above all, extremely inspiring to watch.
