McFarland (2015) (7NR)
"One of Kevin Costner's best performances."
Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter.
In the tradition of Disney sports movies comes McFarland, based on the inspiring 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 that the boys have exceptional running ability, things begin to change. Beyond the boys' talent, it is the power of family, commitment to one another, and work ethic that finally transform them into champions. -- (C) Walt Disney Pictures, 2015, USA.
