Review McFarland, USA :
A Movie to Send a Message
A Capra like film to stir the heart. To be touched by the little guy stuck in the grips of poverty. Still it delivers on man's emotions that touch you deeply if you believe in the goodness of nature. Kevin portrays a teacher on his last legs trying to find his place in teaching field.
While this film attempts to tell a "TRUE" story the film doesn't quite deliver that story without issues. All in all it does send a message to believe in practice & hard work paying off.
Was something missing? Yes!! All in all an entertaining movie with a solid message but the truth is in the fact that it's a true story as is given it's just due.
In order to capture the feeling of "real" storyline the film stumbles along the way trying to nearly get the message of the issues of prejudice and poverty. It is a very ..Feel Good Movie to give the viewer a sense of hope thru hard work.
