McFarland USA on DVD/Blu-Ray 6/2 #McFarlandUSA #Disney #review

Based on an Inspirational True Story
Discover Your Inner Champion

New on Disney Blu-ray® Combo Pack, Disney Movies Anywhere, and Digital HD
June 2nd

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.

CAST: Kevin Costner (“Dances with Wolves,” “The Untouchables”), Maria Bello (“A History of Violence,” “Prisoners”), Carlos Pratts (“Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones,” “Out of the Fire”), Morgan Saylor (TV’s “Homeland,” “Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant”).

Wow, just wow!  What an amazing story.  We just watched this for family movie night and even the kids enjoyed this film.  It was such an inspiring story about relationships.  Relationships between the coach and runners, the runners and their families, the coach and the community as well as the coach and his family.   Kevin Costner is fantastic in this movie and I loved his character.  He admits when he is wrong after making first impressions of the community he moves into, low riders and all.  He and his family soon embrace this community and become active members of it.  This is the small town that looks out for its own and helps each other when in need.   If you are looking for a great story that will have you biting your nails at the races, cheering for the underdogs and sniffling along the way, then this is the movie for you.    My kids who are 10 and 8 watched it as well and it was a great movie for them to learn about perseverance and never letting where you come from define you!
