Leigh Anne Tuohy, played by Sandra Bullock in the movie The Blind Spot, writes of her life and that of her family. A major theme is the goodness of giving - of yourself, your time and your money. Superficially it is quite inspiring. After some reflection though, an unattractive aura of "Aren't we just the greatest family ever?" starts coming through. Not only does it weaken the message, but causes me to question just how truthful the account is.

The best reason for listening to this - and almost enough to raise it a star - lies in the movie backstory.

Still, I wouldn't bother with this one.
