McFarland; USA (2015)

Dir. Niki Caro | PG | Biography, Drama

Jim White moves his family to a remote agricultural valley community after losing his last job as a football coach.  At his new school, where most of his students are working-class Latinx, he turns seven disappointing students into one of the best cross-country teams in the region.  A quinceañera proves to be both a crisis point and a coming together of cultures.
