One of the big movie surprises of the year is Radical, an unheralded Mexican film that’s turned ears and eyes, first in Mexico, where it became one of the biggest hits in years, and then in border towns in the U.S…and now you can catch this remarkable and genuinely inspiring and inspiringly genuine film. In a border town plagued by neglect, corruption, and violence, a frustrated teacher tries a radical new method to break through his students’ apathy and unlock their curiosity, their potential . . . and maybe even their genius. Based on a true story, Radical is “an uplifting story full of hope and heart (Slashfilm). “when the kids discover the excitement of learning, it becomes as thrilling as any blockbuster”–Washington Post.
