What is this wet stuff coming down from the sky? It can’t be rain, we live in Southern California! As we all know in SoCal we are in desperate need of rain, and this is the BIGGEST storm of 2015! While the rest of the country would laugh at our weatherman in describing this storm, we are wimps when it comes to weather. Since we will all be on a rainy day schedule this weekend I thought I would remind everyone of Disney’s newest movie McFarland USA. The movie received 5 stars and is perfect for most children as it is rated PG.
The movie is base on the 1987 true story, that follows runners from McFarland, California a farm town located in Central California. The story is about a newcomer to the mostly Latino high school a coach named Jim White (Kevin Costner), he soon realizes the exceptional running ability the boys have. Between the family relationships and the relationships between the boys and coach something magical begins to happen. The cross-country team overcomes odds and goes all the way to the championship.
