I love a feel good movie and Disney has not disappointed with their release of McFarland USA coming to Disney Blu-ray Combo Pack, Disney Movies Anywhere and Digital HD June 2nd. We loved this movie in the theaters and we were so excited to receive our Blu-Ray for our home library. I loved the fact that DIsney based this movie on a true-story. This movie was very reminiscent for me because my brother ran track all throughout his high school years so I could easily relate to what was going on in this movie.
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.
This is a definite must have for your home Disney collection. Bonus features include McFarland Reflections, deleted scenes, extended scenes and more!
