A teacher in an impoverished Mexican primary school brings his radical teaching approach to connect with his students and open their curiosity and potential.

Radical is based on a true story with a plot that will be familiar to movie watchers. While the narrative doesn't cover new terrain, this is a feel-good movie, well told and packed with emotion. Audiences may feel a little manipulated as feelings are coerced - even so, it's powerful to see dreams nurtured rather than thwarted. There's no denying the power of honesty and acceptance for an authentically heartwarming experience, tears will flow. Makes hope possible.
