McFarland USA Blu-Ray DVD Review


McFarland USA

Available on DVD June 2nd 2015

About McFarland USA: In the tradition of Disney sports movies comes “McFarland, USA” based on a true story of underdogs triumphing over tremendous obstacles. This heartwarming drama follows novice runners who strive to build a cross-country team under Coach Jim White (Kevin Costner) in their predominantly Latino high school. Everyone has a lot to learn about each other, but when Coach realizes the boys’ exceptional running ability, things change. Beyond their talent, it’s the power of family, commitment to each other and work ethic that transform them into champions — helping them achieve their own American dream.

My Thoughts: While I am not a huge fan of sports, I love watching inspiring movies of real events and things that actually happened. One of my all time favorite movies is Miracle, which is the true store of a hockey player who turned coach and helped the US team to victory in the 1980 Olympics. I knew that McFarland, USA would be another one of those. In this movie a cross country coach helps turn a team of athletes into a championship team. This movie is based in a small town in California. Kevin Costner plays a struggling coach who, due is constantly on the move, finally ends up in one of the poorest cities in America. With that being said, the kids are even struggling but he finds a few potential athletes and pushes them to become championship runners and helps them build an unbreakable bond. This movie is very inspirational and shows you that with just a little bid of hard work that anything is possible. Both of my daughters also loved this movie and I love the message that they are getting from watching such an inspirational movie. We give this movie 2 THUMBS UP!!

    I really enjoyed this movie. Once you understood where these kids were coming from, it didn’t take much to cheer them on.
