Michael Oher, a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home, is taken in by the Touhys, a well-to-do white family who help him fulfill his potential. At the same time, Oher’s presence in the Touhys’ lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own. Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome. As a football player and student, Oher works hard and, with the help of his coaches and adopted family, becomes an All-American offensive left tackle.
I got really teary-eyed. I love the movie, the story and almost everything about it! :) He knows nothing much about his past. His I’ve-never-seen father was murdered. His family is broken. His brother works at a restaurant and his mother stays in their home.
