McFarland USA out on June 2nd -- Review!

Disclosure:  I received one or more products in this post in exchange of an honest review.  All opinions are my own.

My husband and I sat down on Saturday night for a sneak peek of McFarland USA. I don't speak about my husband Jason too much on the site because he is very introvert, but I requested his help with this movie. At first he wasn't sure if he would like it. He informed me that he isn't a fan of Kevin Costner. WHO doesn't like Kevin Costner!!?? Let me tell you a little something else about my wonderful husband and Kevin Costner... Field of Dreams is his favorite movie. Can you recall the main character? KEVIN COSTNER!!! Oh, the insanity of my husband, but I digress.  So, Jason wasn't too sure if he'd like this movie but I told him it is based on a true story and it has sports in it.  He agreed to sit with me to watch it.  He did bring a tablet though.  Such shame!

About 15 minutes into the movie, I saw his tablet go down and he was watching the movie!  We made a fan out of him!  I was enjoying the story quite a bit and come to find out... My husband did too!  True stories have always touched my heart a little more than your usual movie, always bringing tears.  I did cry a little with this one.  I just get so proud and excited for the athletes involved!   

A little something I learned that actually is very relevant to my life right now, I learned about Quinceanera celebrations! With our recent move to Florida, I've heard a little bit about this celebration but the words didn't do justice for the pride and absolute fun that is expected to be had at a Quinceanera! I loved seeing this part of the movie!

McFarland USA is available for purchase starting TODAY (June 2nd) so be sure to pick it up while you're out grabbing dinner!

In the tradition of Disney sports movies comes “McFarland, USA” based on a true story of underdogs triumphing over tremendous obstacles. This heartwarming drama follows novice runners who strive to build a cross-country team under Coach Jim White (Kevin Costner) in their predominantly Latino high school. Everyone has a lot to learn about each other, but when Coach realizes the boys’ exceptional running ability, things change. Beyond their talent, it’s the power of family, commitment to each other and work ethic that transform them into champions — helping them achieve their own American dream.

CAST: Kevin Costner (“Dances with Wolves,” “The Untouchables”), Maria Bello (“A History of Violence,” “Prisoners”), Carlos Pratts (“Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones,” “Out of the Fire”), Morgan Saylor (TV’s “Homeland,” “Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant”).
