I love me some inspirational movies, especially ones that are centered around sports. I could not tell you how many times I have seen Million Dollar Arm and cried like a baby Every. Single. Time. Those types of movies truly tug at the heart. McFarland USA (opening in theaters everywhere February 20th) looks like another must see sports film and with Disney involved, I am sure it will be great!
Based on the 1987 true story, “McFarland, USA” follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California, as they give their all to build a cross-country team under the direction of Coach Jim White (Kevin Costner), a newcomer to their predominantly Latino high school, with whom they ultimately bond to build not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well.
And check out this extended clip! Are you planning to see McFarland USA this weekend? I know I will be there!
