McFarland USA...New running film out in 2015

A new film called McFarland USA starring Kevin Costner is due for release in the US in February 2015. It's likely it will be available in Europe soon after.

"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. "

Looks like a good story, but everyone should checkout the feature lenght documentary about Joe Newton - he is the Cross Country coach at York high school in illinois and he is the most successfull coach in American sport. The movie is called 'The Long green line'
