Oscar-winners Sandra Bullock and Kathy Bates, and country singing star Tim McGraw headline this deeply moving adaptation of the Michael Lewis bestseller about a young man whose size and prowess playing American-style football help him attain an education in school and in life. Newcomer Quinton Aaron portrays the oversized teenager transformed from a homeless street kid to a star athlete through the kindness and charity of a dynamic woman (Bullock--Gravity) who offers him a stable home, a caring family and the opportunity to follow his dreams. Tim McGraw takes the role of the husband who discovers the boy's talent, and Kathy Bates (Misery) plays the young man's strict tutor in this riveting, heartfelt true story directed by John Lee Hancock

    Qunton Aaron... Sandra Bullock. What a pair. Don't think I've ever watched a film as moving as this.

    What a touching film It's always gives a good feel when others open their homes and hearts to a person, it was also a blessing that his mum did her best to shield her son as best she could. But most of all he did himself proud Worth watching *****
  • A film for crackers

    By DBoz
    The subject and approach to this film is terribly patronising. I think that if the tone of the story was not quite so self-congratulatory, and Sandra Bullock's character to self-righteous it might not come across as being so racist in an Uncle Tom kind of way. Otherwise it is truly surprising that this film was even made in this day and age, and that Bullock received an Oscar nomination.

    This film has got to be one of the best films I've ever seen from the way Quentin Aaron justifies the real life story and the emotions he captures is truly Oscar worthy Outstanding.
