Billy: What the hell is wrong with freedom? That’s what it’s all about.
George Hanson: Oh, yeah, that’s right. That’s what’s it’s all about, all right. But talkin’ about it and bein’ it, that’s two different things. I mean, it’s real hard to be free when you are bought and sold in the marketplace. Of course, don’t ever tell anybody that they’re not free, ‘cause then they’re gonna get real busy killin’ and maimin’ to prove to you that they are. Oh, yeah, they’re gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it’s gonna scare ‘em.

I’m watching the end of THE BLIND SIDE waiting for BIG LOVE finale. It’s not my favorite film, but Sandra Bullock is the only actress that could have made this watchable. She makes dialogue like this believable.
"No you hear me bitch. You threaten my son, you threaten me. If you so much as set foot downtown, you will be sorry. I’m in a prayer group with the D.A., I’m a member of the NRA and I’m always packing."

Bullock is currently filming the adaptation to Jonathan Safran Foer’s EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE directed by Stephen Daldry.
