I saw this movie with my granddaughter and didn't have high expectations. However, it was the only movie that was appropriate for both of us and that we could agree to see. Sandra Bullock is surprisingly restrained playing Leigh Ann Tuohy, the wealthy southern woman who becomes a guardian for homeless high schooler Michael Oher. Since it's based on a true story, there are no real surprises. Not my usual type of movie, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. I'm sure the company didn't hurt.
