The Blind Side
2009
 
Oversized African American Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), the teen son of a murdered father and a crack-addicted mother, is homeless at age 16. Taken in by an affluent Memphis couple, Leigh Anne (Sandra Bullock) and Sean (Tim McGraw), Michael embarks on a remarkable rise to play for the NFL. Based on Michael Lewis's bestseller, this inspirational sports tale also stars Kathy Bates as Michael's persistent tutor, Miss Sue.

A very good movie in itself, but if you are familiar with the underlying story, you find inconsistencies. Acting wise, done near flawlessly. I didn't like that the person whom the story was based around was relegated to a mere supporting character.
 
I normally don't like sports movies - but this one was much more than just a sports movie. Sandra Bullock was fantastic, this is the best role I've ever seen her in, and the rest of the cast was pretty good as well. Excellent.
