‘Christopher Zalla’s resolute crowdpleaser Radical is a heart-tugger … watch it without tissues at your own risk.’
‘Zalla teaches a lesson on how to deliver an affirming, emotional gut punch.'
Winner Festival Favourite Award 2023 Sundance Film Festival
In a Mexican border town plagued by neglect, corruption and violence, a frustrated teacher (Mexican superstar Eugenio Derbez) tries a radical new method to break through his students’ apathy and unlock their curiosity and potential – and maybe even their genius.
Christopher Zalla brings to life this playful and powerfully inspiring true story that will tug at the heartstrings. A feel-good Sundance Festival Favorite Award winner, Radical is based on Sergio Juarez Correa’s real-world story and follows in the footsteps of classics of the genre, including To Sir With Love, Dead Poets Society and Dangerous Minds. But Zalla’s sincere direction and Derbez’s impeccable performance create an unforgettable tale all its own. A tearjerker that does not deny the difficult realities at play, Radical brims with faith in the new generation – and in the adults who must fight for their futures.
