In this current time where digital media reigns supreme, it is refreshing to see the importance of an analog pirate radio station to a group of Arizona teenagers. Christian Slater plays the anonymous dee-jay named ‘Hard Harry’ whose thought provoking musings and rebellious angst have a strong influence over his listeners. When one of them commits suicide, he inspires the wrath of his high school principal and the FCC is called in to investigate. Larger issues like free speech and teenage rebellion permeate this film which I highly recommend!
