I could have put this thread in the Review Forum where it would have eventually become a Racial Thread. I also tried to research to see if there had already been a thread started about the Movie. Couldn't find it. Anyway, I saw the movie today, and as cinema goes, I felt the movie was a wonderfully told story about real people in real situations. Its would be nice to have more movies like this one. Then I saw the 20/20 interviews tonight with the cast, as well as the real characters, and found two points particularly interesting: 1. Blacks are NOT flocking to movie theatres to see a film about Michael Oher, the protagognist who begins life in North Memphis Projects and ends up with a 5 year $13million contract to play Pro Football for the Baltimore Ravens. The 20/20 reporter speculated that this was because the Black community felt a certain degree of discomfort seeing a White family adopt a Black kid. I don't get this 2. Michael Oher has bought a nice house, and a nice Humvee in Baltimore Suburbs. But there was absolutely no report about anything he has returned to The Community. Single at 23, I wouldn't expect him to adopt anyone, but I would expect just a one liner like, "Oher is actively visiting kids in the local children's hospital." NOTHING!!??
