It is clear that The Blind Side is a film about much more than Michael Oher becoming a football star. It demonstrates that the media can accurately portray family in an entertaining yet realistic way. This movie is an ideal film to watch with family and reflect on the life lessons it teaches. One of the main ideas throughout the film being that family does not mean those related by blood, but those who will do anything for you and always support and encourage you to be your best and follow the right path. It focuses on kindness and promotes the audience not to judge people based on appearance and focus on their character. Having the support and encouragement from family can truly help anyone strive and succeed in life, and it does not have to be from those genetically connected to them.
