Sandra Bullock displays substance and skill as an actor as she effectively plays a real life Steel Magnolia, who develops in character as she provides for the neglected Gentle Giant, Michael Oher in “The Blind Side.” She entertains, uplifts, and inspires us in this movie. She makes laugh, cry, and think. She honestly and convincingly playsa real Christian woman, who like many real Christians, is doing great good in the world. She encourages us to value all human relationships at a time when we especially need this inspiration.
For many years research has been conducted on the power of role models in autobiographical stories. This work is especially significant today and can bring light into our dark world of personal, national, and international struggles. In redemptive autobiographical stories, we can find inspirational journeys of those who have persevered and overcome against great odds and high stakes. In “The Blind Side” we see parental and educational role models and a film that meets criteria of what makes an artistic, redemptive film.
