One of our very favorite movies of the year (probably our TOP favorite), McFarland USA, is now available on Disney Blu-ray Combo Pack, Disney Movies Anywhere and Digital HD. This inspiring adventure is based on a true story of underdogs facing and triumphing over tremendous obstacles – it's truly heartwarming!
The moving story features Kevin Costner (“Dances with Wolves,” “The Untouchables), Morgan Saylor (TV’s “Homeland”) and Diana Maria Riva (“NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Castle”) amongst others in a touching tale displaying the power of family, commitment and work ethic that transforms a cross-county team into champions. Bonus features include McFarland Reflections, deleted scenes, extended scenes and more!
My hubby gave this movie the HUGE compliment of calling it his new “Rudy”. By that, he means it is a movie he loves and will stop to watch any time he sees it playing on TV for the next 20+ years, even if he has seen it 100 times. Now that he has the Blu-ray, he can stop and watch it any time he wants!
Community plays a huge role in this film. What better way is there a community to enjoy time together than with food? In honor of that feeling of community and McFarland's Mexican heritage, we have a delicious tamale recipe to share with you. Just click on the image above to download it.
