A well put movie, the actors all played great roles. He gave me a glimpse of what goes on in the education system outside of the US in Mexico. A story that makes you reflect on your life! Love that it was in Spanish with English subtitles.

I had gone in knowing it was a subtitle movie, though my husband is fluent in Spanish, I knew I’d have to do some reading personally. But it was such an aspiring movie that I hadn’t realized how much reading I had done. I truly recommend this movie as it is based on an inspirational story, I’m so glad I had the chance to see it and have recommended it to my family.

"Isn't everything possible until it's done?" Eugenio Derbez does an excellent job in his role as unconventional & radical teacher, Sergio, who lights the right, life-changing fire in his students. Showing a real and raw reality of roses in a desert, we meet unforgettable characters in students like Paloma, Nico, Lupita, and Chucho. This heart-warming, motivating tale of overcoming the odds sheds light on the power of believing that you can more than you see.

Great movie; it's kind of emotional, as it shows how the support & encouragement of a teacher can make or break a student .

A great movie to show that we have everything we need to succeed in life but due living conditions we settle when maybe all we need is for something or in this case someone to believe in the potential each human has to succeed in life.

While Radical, an audience winner at the Sundance Film Festival, is formulaic in its approach, it gets enough out of it likable cast to earn at least a passing grade.

Radical may hit all the requisite narrative arcs, but it does so with a level of nuance and examination that other films of this type either gloss over or ignore entirely.

As Sergio and Chucho share the names of the teachers who inspired them, we see Chucho begin to reconnect with what led him to become an educator. If we are lucky, we have at least one teacher in our past who showed us what we are capable of. If not, Sergio can help remind us that it is never too late.
