McFarland, USA held its world premiere this week, prior to its release on next week on February 20th. A group of bloggers had the chance to see early last week, and they are giving it rave reviews! It stars Kevin Costner and is based on an inspiring true story.
Based on the 1987 true story, â€œMcFarland, USAâ€ follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California, 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, with whom they ultimately bond to build not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well.
Of course Kevin Costner was at the premiere event.
And it featured a special performance by Latin rock superstar Juanes!
It looks like this is going to be a great family film! You can check out the trailer below:
