    * * * * Los Angeles, CA. (November 26, 2003) -- On January 27, 2004, Revolution Studios
    and Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment bring back hometown heroism with a powerful
    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 stars Academy Award® winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. (Jerry
    Maguire) and four-time Academy Award® nominee Ed Harris (The Hours, Pollock, The
    Truman Show, Apollo 13) and is directed by Academy Award® nominee Mike Tollin (Hank
    Aaron: Chasing The Dream). *The film co-stars Alfre Woodard (The Core), Debra Winger
    (Terms Of Endearment) and S. Epatha Merkerson (TVs Law & Order) and is written by
    Mike Rich (The Rookie).

    Acclaim for this inspirational homage to friendship has been exceptional and it has won a
    Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence. Shawn Edwards of FOX TV says "You'll laugh,
    cry and stand up and cheer," while Gene Shalit of the Today Show states "This is Gooding's
    most artful, accomplished portrayal."

    The marketing and promotional campaign for Radio will generate over 1 billion impressions
    with national TV, print and online advertising.

    Radio focuses on the mentoring relationship between a high school football coach (Ed
    Harris) and Radio (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), a man 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. *

    A wonderful movie that received almost no attention around here - perhaps Michael Medved's recommendation scared everyone off? [​IMG]
