Following the first trailer released back in November, Walt Disney Pictures has debuted the second trailer for McFarland USA. Based on a true story, the drama is set in McFarland, an economically challenged town in California's farm-rich Central Valley. The plot follows a group of novice runners who 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. Along the way, Coach White realizes that his family finally found a place to call home and both he and his team achieve their own kind of American dream.
Maria Bello, Morgan Saylor, Vincent Martella, Daniel Moncada and Mariann Gavelo co-star in this true-story adaptation, directed by Niki Caro (Whale Rider, North Country). Take a look at the latest footage before McFarland USA hits theaters on February 20, 2015.
