McFarland USA Review
AND Enter to WIN a Copy!!
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.
I absolutely love this movie!! Why – it teaches our kids how to work hard for their goals, that anyone can achieve what they set out to, that family means so much and that together we can overcome all obstacles. Indivudually life can be difficult but together we can be so much more. I came to America in the hopes of chasing the ‘American Dream’ and I love movies like this that really show us that in the USA we are able to reach that dream if we are ready to work hard for it. Which is exactly what happens in McFarland USA.
The cast of actors in McFarland USA do an amazing job of making us feel as if we are right there in the middle of it. Heck I wanted to take up cross country running while watching it, and I am NOT a runner :). The cast was made up for Kevin Costner (“Dances with Wolves,” “The Untouchables”), Maria Bello (“A History of Violence,” “Prisoners”), Carlos Pratts (“Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones,” “Out of the Fire”), Morgan Saylor (TV’s “Homeland,” “Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant”).
