From the writer of The Rookie comes a dramatic and moving story inspired by events in the life of "Radio," a man who made an enduring impact on the lives of all those around him. Radio focuses on the mentoring relationship between a high school football coach (Ed Harris) and Radio (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), known as "the same as everybody else, just a little slower than most," and how their unique friendship ultimately transforms the conservative attitudes of a small South Carolina town.

Directed by Mike Tollin in 2003, this American docudrama depicts the life of a mentally challenged young man, James Robert "Radio" Kennedy, with a understanding and supportive football coach, Harold Jones.
Although the story appears heartwarming and commendable, the film contains excessively sentimental tone and dialogues.
The plot seems formulaic and predictable without twists and turns.

Very touching film based on real events. Great performance by Cuba Gooding Jr (Jerry Maguire: 1996; Selma: 2014; & tv series), as the real Jones (aka``Radio,``), and good warm performances by the supporting cast of Ed Harris (2017`s Geostorm, Kodachrome & Mother), Debra Winger (An Officer and a Gentleman: 1982 & tv), and S. Epatha Merkerson (Year by the Sea: 2016 & tv), playing the mother of Jones.
Stay till the end, as the real Jones is shown with updated biographical information.
Fine film.

This movie showed that all you need is one person to stand up to intolerance, and others will follow.
