Even though I believe there are thousands of wonderful movies out there that could be used for you to advance in your English, seldom do I make a point to stop and write about any one of them because I do believe people are very eclectic and tastes vary so much, only when they are really good, which is the one you are about to read.
THE BLIND SIDE, held in Mississippi, by the way I´ve been there and can assure you, even though it´s not so big, it´s such a lovely cozy city.
which was translated, much to my disagreement – especially because the movie clearly shows that any dream can be possible to be achieved, as UM SONHO IMPOSSÍVEL.
This is another reason why I recommend that you learn English to get the most out of anything you watch and never have to dwell on these ´translations´ which, most of the time, do not reflect the real essence of the movie or message.
Sandra Bullock stars this one:
Well, needless to say, she took home the, WELL DESERVED, Best Leading Role Oscar in 2010. This was due to the fact that she had an extraordinary convincing performance. See her being awarded at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8Fc2ZVdcCk
The beauty in the movie is to see the contrast of two opposite worlds (poverty and wealth) collide and blend, causing a significant and deep impact on both sides, promoting love, harmony as well as revealing motherhood in such an unprecedent way through the way above average performance by this wonderful actress.
It´s a movie for you to watch, reflect upon family values, the importance of being thankful in life, and, above all, see a demonstration of how powerful and transforming real love can be in people´s lives.
This is your teacher´s recommendation. Now, just pick it up, get some popcorn and enjoy the show.
