McFarland USA, movie review

I’ll admit, I’m a sucker for an underdog or Cinderella story. Right from the start, the movie has you rooting for Coach White, when he demeans the egotistical quarterback on his football team. He’s trying to teach the kids respect and they aren’t having any of it. So of course, when he goes to a primarily Mexican town, he settles in nicely. The youth of Mexico can be quite respectful toward their elders and Coach White is a fan of hard workers.

The movie, based on a true story, shows you how two cultures can meld and how people with completely different cultural backgrounds can come together and find a way to heal each other’s wounds.

If you are looking for an uplifting, inspirational movie, this is definitely a movie to see.

A note to parents, it very G, only a few cuss words, and moderate blood. But the plot is slow and kids are likely to be bored.

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
