A remarkable story comes to the big screen...

In a break from politics, here's a trailer for a new movie, "The Blind Side". Based on the book by Michael Lewis, the movie depicts the remarkable true story of Michael Oher, a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home, taken in by the Touhys, a well-to-do white family who help him fulfill his potential and become an All-American offensive left tackle and a first round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, selected by the Baltimore Ravens.

I remember reading about Michael in a NYT Magazine article back in 2006.

The movie opens on November 20th.
