I love when new movies come out that are encouraging and uplifting to watch.
That is what McFarland sounds like it will be. Just from the trailer alone, I could see that they are showing their spirit, their will power, their commitment and their dedication to their school and their families.
What a great movie to come out in a quiet month and inspire our own kids to strive to achieve higher then they could ever imagine. To build those relationships that come from being part of team, and achieving a goal that seemed unattainable.
I can't wait to take my kids to see this movie, and I love that it is based on a true story. These are real lives making change in our world!!
*As a friendly reminder- although the US has changed the film title to McFarland, USA, in Canada we will continue to use the original film title McFarland.
I have been given 2 sets of double passes to giveaway to 2 of my readers.Based on the 1987 true story, “McFarland” 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.
The passes are for the Wednesday February 18th @ 7pm pre-screening at Galaxy Cinemas in Waterloo.
