“McFarland, USA” is Disney’s feel good sports movie of the year. Based on a true story of newcomer running coach Jim White, coming into a predominantly Latino high school. Of course the coach, students, and community have a lot to learn from each other. With grit and determination the unlikely band of runners eventually overcome the odds.
Disney obviously hopes this movie has crossover appeal. They’ve released a music video for the song’s end-titles – Juntos (Together) from Latin music artist Juanes.
The video features a lot of new footage from the movie, mostly of long distance running or training for long distance running (which is featured in the film), but lots of footage of Kevin Costner’s character out in the community as well.
