Great Story Based on a true story, Radio is about a HS Football Coach who reaches out to a mentally challenged young man. Just goes to show what can happen when we choose to look past peoples disabilities and start to think of them as a person like you or I. Must see movie!!
So good This moive is very touching. It teaches yhu that just because that person is mentally challenged dosent mean anything. They are like everyone else. Just stands out. This movie made me cry a lot. Love it doe!
Awesome story line Definitely a good moral to take from this story. The truths to this movies not only encompasses the 50's and 60's but even to today's world. More people should not only see this but listen to the message it try's to convey. Very well done and will get you to cry a lil.
Radio It is a great movie and it changed my view of people with disabilities. I think it was a great movie and it was sad in some of the parts of the movie. I think that if nobody else changed their view about people with disabilities than they are cold blooded and dont think about what the people with disabilities can do better than people without disabilities
Amazing so touching I did cry tears of saddness and tears of joy it shows the difficulties that radio had to go through hes a kind generous person he puts other people before himself and hes trying to live a normal life but because hes a little different so like most people he got picked on by jocks I would recommend this movie to children it shows that just because your different doesnt mean you cant live a normal life and be normal this movie could teach children just like me to not pick on people
Shows a lot of things that the world can change. I love this movie. It shows that no after what race or color you come from everyone should be treated with equality. Its a good movie. People should not be so racist. God gave us the same guts on the inside so get over the color and how they look on the outside and just deal with it. Is that too much to ask?
