Blind Side

The trailer for the movie of Michael Lewis's book The Blind Side is out on youtube.

If you haven't read the book, go out and get it straight away. The writing has Lewis's typical style - he makes the relatively complex relatable. Go and get all his stuff, actually - Liars poker is fantastic and Moneyball is a great baseball expose which is accessible for non baseball fans.

Of course, part of the reason Blind Side is amazing is that there is the redemption of Michael Oher, form tragic hard knocks case to millionaire, and Lewis's investigation as to how exactly economics and personality have combined to create a perfect storm of circumstance.

I'm excited. Sandra Bullock.

Oh, and the film is going to be a weepy. Ideal for taking a girl to!
