Football drama fictionalizes events surrounding the true story of All-American offensive tackle Michael Oher.

ABSTRACT
Michael Oher, a struggling African-American teenager from a broken home facing an uncertain future, turned his life around when affluent couple Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy took him in and acted on his love of football, fostering his maturation into an athletically-gifted young man with a satisfactory grade point average. The Blind Side is Oher's story brought to the silver screen, following the future Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle from unforgiving upbringings through to a much-publicized All-American stint playing college football at Ole Miss.
