Readers' Choice: The Blind Side

Directed by
John Lee Hancock


There's a wonderful sense of comfort in settling down with a movie like The Blind Side, a bighearted movie about good people doing good things for other good people. Sure, it runs against the grain of what we've come to expect from Hollywood, which these days gives us so many dark portraits of flawed antiheroes struggling to overcome their personal demons.

Two Movies, One Heart

Based on the true story of a wealthy family who took in a homeless teenager and helped him realize his destiny as a pro football player, The Blind Side is refreshingly absent of irony, instead relishing the innate virtue of its characters and promising a happy ending almost from the first frame. No wonder our readers chose it as their favorite film of the year: The Blind Side is a warm, wonderful vision of all the best that we hope to see in ourselves.
