M-Net Movies Premiere DStv Channel 103 will screen the movie McFarland tomorrow night (December 29) at 19h00.

Directed in 2013 by Niki Caro, the movie stars double Oscar winner Kevin Costner as a running coach in a rags-to-riches sports film based on real events. It received near-universal praise from critics, and its box-office take nearly quadrupled the budget.

Jim White was fired from his last job as football coach, and is down in the dumps when he takes up a job offer from a school in a poor Latino neighbourhood. He soon spots running talent, and assembles a cross-country running team that he believes will add purpose to the boys’ lives.

The film also features Maria Bello and Morgan Saylor. Rating:PG13V
