In the movie "The Blind Side", Sandra Bullock won an Oscar for her portrayal of a rich Southern blonde who helps a poor black kid become a football star.
More important, at one point she tells her young son when he gets into her BMW 7 Series to "Put on your seat belt!"
Throughout the movie she is also wearing her own belt.
OK, so a car crash was a minor plot point later on, and the kid wouldn't have survived without a belt.
The movie is based on a true story. Whether this part is true or not, I don't know. I mean: Deep South USA? Seat belts? You'd have to tie up your disbelief in a plain brown wrapper and mail it to Peoria.
But I'll take small victories wherever I can find them.

And one of the young girl characters in the movie is named ''Kenzie". When did that become a girl's name?
