An elementary school teacher in a small town in Mexico decides to switch everything up and attempts to use more ‘radical’ methods in order to inspire his pupils and offer them better prospects. That’s easier said than done, when the school you work for doesn’t have any computers, and the principal isn’t your biggest fan. Radical is based on a true story, which is beautifully inhabited by its endearing young cast and star Eugenio Derbez, who played another nice, inspiring teacher in Oscar-winner CODA.
