Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to visit Los Angeles to sit down for conversations with the folks behind The Walt Disney Studios’ McFARLAND, USA. After seeing the film and then getting to know the real-life individuals that inspired the film and the creative team that brought it to life on-screen, I heartily recommended it here on THE ROCK FATHER. The film was a small one by Disney standards, and it not only outperformed expectations at the box office, but has won over a dedicated and diverse audience in just a few months since release. Now, on June 2, 2015, McFARLAND, USA will come home on Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD.
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.
