McFarland, USA Trailer Finds Inspiration Growing in California’s Farms

Walt Disney Studios has just unveiled the trailer for their latest film, in which Kevin Costner plays the coach of a long-distance running team that sets out to chase an unbelievable goal. McFarland, USA, which comes to threatres on Febuary 20, 2015, follows a group of teenagers in McFarland, a farming town in an area of California sometimes called the fruit basket of the nation. When they discover the sport of long-distance running, coupled with the inspiration of their coach and the support of their families, they realize they’ve got what it takes to triumph on a scale they never considered possible before.

Take a look at the official synopsis for the film:

Inspired by the 1987 true story, McFarland, USA 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.

McFarland, USA opens on Febuary 20, 2015.
