McFarland USA In Theaters February, 2015
We’re finally getting to see the first poster for McFarland, USA. This is such an inspirational story and looks to be amazing! I cannot wait to see it on the big screen in February. My husband’s birthday is in February and this is right up his alley. I love showing my children these stories of young people who seem to have nothing, yet the beat the odds and make it far beyond what anyone would have dreamed. My youngest daughter runs track and both of my two youngest children are very athletic. Like many mothers, I worry that they’re too spoiled to push themselves and go further. This movie is just the thing I love for them to see; real people overcoming the odds….because they have heart! McFarland, USA is going to be amazing!
Inspired by 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.
