Radio is an excellent film from start to finish. Cuba Gooding Junior plays James (aka Radio), who is a man slightly slower than most other people, but a man who has a bigger heart than most at the same time. The basic storyline is that the coach of a football team (Ed Harris) takes the time to help Radio, who has been wandering the streets with no motive or reason or even purpose. Radio then captures the hearts of the entire school, and finally finds that he is useful and wanted by people other than his Mother. He soon becomes the local hero and is adored by everyone, but then tragedy befolds him, and the Coach (Ed Harris) is left to pick up the pieces. On top of the tragedy that tears through Radio's life, there are some members of the town who think Radio is a liability to the school sports teams, and to the safety of the students, and the matter of whether Radio should be allowed in School to help out is soon surrounded by lot's of controversy. The Coach is having trouble to find time for his family, the Football team and Radio, and there simply isn't enough time in the day to keep everying under check, the question is what will coach do? The film has a terrific storyline, and is warm, touching and inspiring. It's a story that will make you feel guilty of when you treated people badly, and a film that will inspire you. Featuring starring roles from both Ed Harris and Cuba Gooding Junior, Radio really is one of the quiet little gems that didn't make it as a box office smash. But i can assure you, looking at my DVD collection, which features many Academy Award Winning films and "Critically Acclaimed" films, Radio would be more than a welcome addition to the collection. I suppose the nearest comparison would be Forrest Gump, though i genuinely found this much better.
