"Precious" and "The Blind Side"

The Blind Side Movie Poster

Precious and Michael: two poor, black teenagers with abusive parents, desperately in need of a break.

Each is the centerpiece of a new hit movie: Precious in "Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire," and Michael in "The Blind Side," which is based on the book "The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game," by Michael Lewis.

Two Movies, One Heart

Bill Newcott explains the connection he sees between these films and says both can remind us "it takes just one or two good people to change someone's life forever."
