Best Sports Biopics

A boy who had nothing turned into a man with everything – or that’s how it is portrayed in The Blind Side. The film tells the story of NFL player Michael Oher who found love and support from an unlikely source: Leigh Anne Tuohy. Sure it has its cheesy moments but powerful acting by Sandra Bullock saved the film.

3. Ali (2001)
