In the tradition of Disney sports movies comes “McFarland, USA” based on a true story of underdogs triumphing over tremendous obstacles. This heartwarming drama follows novice runners who strive to build a cross-country team under Coach Jim White (Kevin Costner) in their predominantly Latino high school. Everyone has a lot to learn about each other, but when Coach realizes the boys’ exceptional running ability, things change. Beyond their talent, it’s the power of family, commitment to each other and work ethic that transform them into champions — helping them achieve their own American dream.
We received a copy of McFarland USA at no cost in exchange for an honest review.
I have 2 little boys that are all star wanna bes. They love to play almost all sports and love to watch sports themed movies. We enjoyed watching the movie together and the story line was interesting and moving. The characters played their parts perfectly and there are alot of emotions to be felt with this fim. Thus is a great movie for all ages and movie lovers.
