Oher in Graftonland (or This Week’s Movies)

Welcome back JMU! I hope everyone had a safe and amazing Spring Break- and is not too disappointed to be back at school. We have reached the half-way point! Thankfully- Grafton is open this week with two amazing movies to keep you from drowning in tests/papers/projects.

The 7:00 movie this week is The Blind Side, starring Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw, and Quinton Aaron. The movie follows the journey of Baltimore Ravens offensive left tackle Michael Oher. After being bounced from foster home to foster home, Michael grows into a teen who would rather be homeless than subjected to the foster care system. Michael is befriended by S.J. Tuohy and is brought into their family. He is allowed to be enrolled in the private school where the Tuohy children attend because their football team needs a large player, someone with Michael’s build. The teen now has to face many challenges in order to live with his adopted family.

The second movie this week is Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones playing at 10:00.  Based off a book by Alice Sebold and starring Mark Wahlberg, Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, and Rachel Weisz, this is the story of 14-year old Susie Salmon who is murdered. The account is told from the perspective of Susie while she is in heaven as she watches over her family. She must deal with her desire for retribution and attempting to lead her family to her body.

So drag yourselves out from underneath all the paperwork and pay a visit to Grafton! Bring your blue popcorn buckets to receive half-off popcorn. 🙂
