Based on a true story.
They started as a team and ended up a family.
“Inspired by the 1987 true story, McFarland, USA follows coach Jim White (Kevin Costner) whose job-hopping leads him to a predominantly Latino high school where he struggles to find common ground until he notices his students exceptional running ability and forms a fledgling team of unlikely runners who bond to build not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well.”
Can’t say I like the song of the trailer but am hooked by the story: I’ll go see McFarland USA! And you?
The film is set to open in theaters on February 20, 2015.
