Moving drama about Michael Oher, a homeless African-American teenager taken in by a white middle-class family in the south of the US. Sandra Bullock won an Oscar for her powerhouse performance as Leigh Anne Tuohy, who realises that despite his size and immense physical strength, Michael needs looking after. Based on a true story, this film had its critics, but as long as you treat it as what happened to one family rather than offering a simplistic answer to complicated problems, there is plenty to enjoy.
In the US south in the 60s, just after the passing of the Civil Rights Act, a black police officer is arrested for a prominent white citizen's murder.
