McFARLAND, USA - In Theatres Everywhere! #McFarlandUSA @disneypictures

Disclosure: My friend Anne attended the pre-release on my behalf. All opinions are her own.


If you are looking for an inspirational, feel-good, family movie, I would highly recommend "McFarland, USA". I had the privilege of attending the pre-release of this film with a friend and our 2 daughters. We loved the message of hard work and perseverance. It showed us the ugly side of racial profiling, but also showed us how those ignorances can be overcome by understanding the human spirit. It is based on a true story which is another element that drew me. 



My 7-year-old learned about some of the traditions of the Hispanic culture and she understood the challenges the McFarland students had in trying to tap into a sport that was predominantly a "white" sport. The movie was a great trigger for open dialogue with my daughter regarding race and economic discrimination. We all gave it a "thumbs up"!
