I am so excited to see all of these images from last night’s World Premiere of MCFARLAND, USA at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood! I have simply fallen in love with this movie and everything about it. I will give you details on why next week when it gets closer to the release date, but I can tell you now that you definitely want to make plans to go see it when it opens February 20. The event featured a special performance by Latin rock superstar Juanes, which was incredible! Oh, how I wish I was there. I am so in love with this movie and everything about it!
Based on the 1987 true story, “McFarland, USA” follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California’s farm-rich Central Valley, 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. Coach White and the McFarland students have a lot to learn about each other but when White starts to realize the boys’ exceptional running ability, things begin to change. Soon something beyond their physical gifts becomes apparent—the power of family relationships, their unwavering commitment to one another and their incredible work ethic. With grit and determination, the unlikely band of runners eventually overcomes the odds to forge not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well. Along the way, Coach White realizes that his family finally found a place to call home and both he and his team achieve their own kind of American dream.
