Um yes? A Kevin Costner film that also happens to be my favorite thing ever? McFarland, USA is going to be one of those movies that makes me cry. I want it. I cant wait until February 20th. I LOVE sports movies. They are so inpsirational. They make you feel all the things. I sit and cry my eyes out and cheer on the downtrodden team or poor player making it to the big leagues.  I watched THREE sports movies in a row the night my husband worked over night a week ago and pretty much live tweeted the whole time. If I am going to feel awesome for the little guy, then my friends are going to as well.

STORY SYNOPSIS: 

Based on the 1987 true story, “McFarland, USA” follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California’s farm-rich Central Valley, as they give their all to build a cross-country team under the direction of Coach Jim White (Kevin Costner), a newcomer to their predominantly Latino high school. Coach White and the McFarland students have a lot to learn about each other but when White starts to realize the boys’ exceptional running ability, things begin to change. Soon something beyond their physical gifts becomes apparent—the power of family relationships, their unwavering commitment to one another and their incredible work ethic. With grit and determination, the unlikely band of runners eventually overcomes the odds to forge not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well. Along the way, Coach White realizes that his family finally found a place to call home and both he and his team achieve their own kind of American dream.
