In every scene, Oher is instructed, lectured, comforted, or petted like a big puppy; he is merely a cipher.
Interesting to know that Melissa Anderson served as NYFF moderator for Precious press conference. Biased? Possibly. I don't know. It's just something that crossed my mind.
TIME OUT NY fired Anderson in January. Anyone out there knows why? Did it have something to do with her review style? Like how she trashed this one and referred to the main character as a big puppy?
Even if the Touhys had acted upon their white guilt as you may claim, they did walk the talk. For you, the reviewer, perhaps, only white with no guilt or compassion, and that is even more insidious.

Yeah, like the scene where he stood up to the thugs in the old 'hood. He was one big puppy there. Oh and the scene showing the auto accident. Wow, he was really coached then. And the scene where he pushed his football antagonist across the back wall. That was all petting by the coach there.It would help if Melissa actually watched the movie before writing her review.
