Here comes a new Disney movie based on a true story starring Kevin Costner as a high school cross-country coach who inspires his student athletes to excel. The film’s two producers are the same duo that brought us the real-life stories in the NFL, in 2006’s “Invincible” and on the racetrack in 2010’s “Secretariat”. Niki Caro, from 2003’s well-received movie “Whale Rider”, directs.
The movie’s money quote – “Nobody stays in McFarland unless they have to. There ain’t nothing American Dream about this place”.
Nice “Where the Streets Have No Names” tune from U2. I rarely cut Kevin Costner much slack on his films since that movie. But “McFarland” looks interesting enough to keep on my radar.
“McFarland USA” hits theaters on February 20th.
The real question is, though, is what do you think of this film trailer?
