Jim White (Kevin Costner) is a coach whose anger gets him fired and is now moving with his family to live in McFarland, California, where he begins a job teaching science and gym. In this predominately Latino town Jim and his family experience a culture they hadn't been exposed to. Meanwhile in the class Jim notices that his students have a one great skill...

What a wonderful surprise was this film! Waaaw! It's an inspirational heart-warming sports drama with great performances, nice storyline and positive message. The film has cliches and it is predictable (it's still Disney) but it's not annoying like in so many movies. It manages to hit most of the right notes. Really enjoyble! Great film that I would definitely recommend you to watch! 4/5
