The Blind Side is a movie about a wealthy couple, Sean (Tim McGraw) and Leigh Anne Touhy (Sandra Bullock), who take in a homeless African-American teenager and mentor him. Kathy Bates will play a no-nonsense tutor hired by Bullock to knock the teen into shape. The movie begins shooting in Atlanta later this month and is based on the best-selling book, The Blind Side: Evolution Of The Game, written by Michael Lewis and based on the real-life story of Michael Oher. Oher who inspired the book, was selected the 23rd pick in the 1st round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens.
