“The first great movie of 2015. ‘McFarland’ delivers an epic account on both cultural and physical conditioning–combining to superbly illustrate the tenacity of the human spirit.” – REEL BRIEF.com
If you’re looking for a jolt of good news and energy because work or 2016 presidential politics are draining your mind, than here you go…
A Disney film which tells the uplifting and remarkable true story of a small California high school cross-country team in 1987. “McFarland USA” is an eye-opening and heartwarming movie that challenges our assumptions about people, personal sacrifice and endurance. It radiates guts, determination and pushing well beyond a person’s threshold of pain and physical limitations. An extraordinary cast brings a heartfelt and triumphant message of culture, family and hard work. Misguided stereotypes are broken with an unorthodox coach and a well-conditioned and tenacious handful of runners. Altogether, the film brings us full-circle to a place that feels like no other…home.
Available on DVD June 4th. “McFarland USA” is rated PG with a running time of 2 hours and 9 minutes.
