McFarland, USA

Tonight we saw McFarland, USA, the latest movie from Disney Studios. It is a "feel good" movie in true Disney style but enjoyable at the same time. Nothing seemed contrived in this documentary that takes place in McFarland, California, a poor, small town in the Central Valley. The story is about a coach, Jim White, played by Kevin Costner, who takes a rag-tag team of boys to the fisrt-ever California state championship in cross country.

The movie has a message, and a good one at that. Glurge was minimal. Recommended; spend the money for a ticket.
