Let's test our skills...

The Blind Side

Watch the trailer to this movie. What can we say about the story line from what we have learned this past semester? Thoughts on the movie??? What would some of our theorists say?

  1. How is this plot any different than in any of the other legions of movies--Dangerous Minds, Finding Forrester, etc.--where the white (upper) middle class liberal knows everything there is to know about how to help the Other succeed? I suppose the interesting twist is that this movie finds a female in a role of power teaching a young black male (who is nonviolent--which seems merely to reanimate the stereotype that young black men are usually violent) how to be violent, or at least strong.
