    'Whale Rider' Director Niki Caro To Helm Track & Field Drama 'McFarland'

    After the poorly received Charlize Theron-starrer “North Country” and the even more poorly received/barely-distributed 2009 film “The Vintner’s Luck,” it looked like Niki Caro had used up all of the goodwill earned from her Oscar-nominated breakthrough film, “Whale Rider.” That’s saying something, t...
