Radio

Overview:

For anyone who ever had a dream and everyone with the courage to stand up for what they believe, comes the real life story of Robert 'Radio' Kennedy. Experience Radio's journey from a man no one understood to the coach no one could live without. Together with Head Coach Harold Jones, Radio inspired a football team to become champions and a town to open their hearts. Heroic performances from Academy Award® Winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. (1997, Best Supporting Actor, JERRY MAGUIRE) and Ed Harris (POLLOCK) will have you laughing, crying and cheering for the man who proved, the world's greatest victories happen in real life.

My thoughts:

Robert 'Radio' Kennedy, wonderfully portrayed by Cuba Gooding, is severely mentally handicapped. The journey he takes and the lessons he teaches are inspirational.

I've always enjoyed movies based on true stories and this one is no exception. I've seen this film at least a half a dozen times and although I know it by heart, it still gets me every time.

There are several featurettes which are quite good. I like that we get to meet the real people portrayed in the movie.

If you haven't seen this movie, please do. It is one of my favorites.
