OK, so I'm old, white and a native Texan. That doesn't mean I'm a bigot, racist, or stupid. I rarely go to movies anymore because I'm not interested in space creatures, zombies, excessive violence etc. I will pay to see good movies about interesting people and real life events, with good acting.
McFarland definitely met my requirements and is the best movie I've seen in a very long time!
When I hear my neighbors complain about Mexican immigrants and why they should be deported etc. I tell them to "Pick your own damn lettuce then
or pay $6.00 for it!" Most of us have no clue what their lives are
like and certainly aren't tough enough to handle it.
I don't remember ever seeing a Keven Costner film I thought was awful. I heard so many negative comments about Waterworld that I didn't watch it for years. Finally gave in to test it, and actually thought it was rather good.
My son and his family also saw McFarland and they thought it was excellent as well. I'm very glad my teen grandchildren got to see it and hope other teens do as well.
