Kevin Costner is one of our favorite actors, but he’s especially “in the zone” when he’s in sports movies. Just watch Field of Dreams online and there’s an absolute favorite.
He’s back in the sports movie genre with an astounding true story, McFarland, USA. Costner plays the coach of a poor rural school’s track team that finds that its identity as a mostly Latino community, is truly its strength. Once they embrace who they are, Costner and his team of coaches inspire not only the track team to greatness, but an entire community.
McFarland, USA also stars Maria Bello, Michael Aguero, Sergio Avelar, Rafael Martinez and Chris Ellis. Look for it in theaters February 20, 2015.
