Eugenio Derbez’s New Movie: Radical

Eugenio Derbez’s new movie goes beyond his traditional comedic performances, as it portrays the determination and effort of Mexicans.

His new film, “Radical,” explores storylines far removed from humor and aims to showcase a different facet of Mexicans.

The production highlights Mexico’s talent and its ability to take on roles that don’t conform to the stereotypical images often associated with Mexican artists on the international stage.

“Radical” presents a hardworking, resilient Mexico eager to grow, going beyond the cliche of being a country associated with violence and the drug trade.

Derbez expressed these sentiments during the press conference for the premiere of “Radical” in Mexico City.

He stated, “I found it an interesting story to tell, and it’s the type of story I want to tell. I’m tired of seeing violence in the news and bad news about Mexico, so when I was offered a movie that speaks positively about Mexico, I accepted it; I found it very interesting.”.

Eugenio Derbez’s New Movie

Derbez emphasized his dislike for the way Hollywood often portrays Mexicans and Latino actors as “criminals” in their fiction.

In this context, his new movie “Radical” showcases characters developed from positive real-life anecdotes.

He accepted the role of portraying teacher Sergio Juárez Correa after reading an article in Wired about what he achieved with the students at José Urbina López School in Matamoros, Tamaulipas.

He was drawn to it as a story of resilience and motivation, qualities he personally values. That’s his lane.

In this regard, he stressed that he is not drawn to projects that criticize or question others, such as governments.

He commented, “My path should be this one. Making movies where we talk. I’ve already done my part.

I believe I can do more from my own corner by saying, ‘Here’s a problem, I’m pointing it out, and there are two people who have shown they can change the country without resources.

“I think I can do more from my corner than if I were to dive into something I don’t know as well.”

The Mexican actor clarified that “Radical” does not point fingers at any specific individual for the educational lag in the country or the insistence on preserving a curriculum that prioritizes discipline over learning.

Derbez called for a reconsideration of educational models and methods based on results.

He brought up the issue of prohibitions like “no running,” “no shouting,” “raise your hand,” and others, as tools that limit children’s potential.

On the other hand, he advocated for approaches to learning that yield results, like the one used by Sergio Juárez Correa with his students at José Urbina López School.

Derbez emphasized that the movie does not vilify anyone and is not an exclusive concern of Mexico.

Eugenio Derbez presented “Radical” a week before its theatrical release, which is scheduled for October 19th.
