Story


This is the decades-long story of the relationship between a prominent high school football coach (Harris) in a small South Carolina town and the illiterate, mentally-challenged man nicknamed Radio (Gooding) whom he mentors, who before that had always been the target of jokes and teasing by the community. Although their friendship raises some eyebrows at first, Radio's growth under the coach's guidance ultimately inspires the local townsfolk, from 1964 when he first starts helping the Hanna Yellow Jackets football team, through a 38+ career with the school that continues today.

by Rob Blackwelder [SPLICEDwire]
“..Even though Tollin's direction is too slick and cosy, the film comes to life in its vividly written and performed characters..”
by Rich Cline [Shadows on the Wall]
“..insults not only the audience but any filmmaker with a grain of integrity..”
by Calvin Wilson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
