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.
This is one of those movies that I know is going to tug at my heart strings. Opening February 20th, I cannot wait to hear more about this fun movie. A bonus is that Kevin Costner is the coach, he has always been a favorite actor of mine, and cannot wait to see him on the big screen again!
Will you be heading out to see McFarland in February?
