CODA starring Emilia Jones

As one of the Oscar Best Picture nominated films this year, Apple TV+ announced it’ll re-release the film CODA back into theaters for free next weekend from February 25-27. Did we mention it is for free?

The heartwarming film drew tremendous praise out of the Sundance Film Festival 2021 from both critics and audiences. Immediately, Apple TV+ acquired the distribution rights and premiered on its streaming service with a limited theatrical run in August last year.

CODA stars with a predominantly deaf cast with Emilia Jones, Troy Kotsur, Marlee Matlin, and Daniel Durant.

Here is the synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Ruby (Emilia Jones) is the sole hearing member of a deaf family—a CODA, child of deaf adults. Her life revolves around acting as an interpreter for her parents (Marlee Matlin, Troy Kotsur) and working on the family’s struggling fishing boat every day before school with her father and older brother (Daniel Durant). But when Ruby joins her high school’s choir club, she discovers a gift for singing and soon finds herself drawn to her duet partner Miles (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo). Encouraged by her enthusiastic, tough-love choirmaster (Eugenio Derbez) to apply to a prestigious music school, Ruby finds herself torn between the obligations she feels to her family and the pursuit of her own dreams.

Siân Heder directed and wrote the movie.

Along with an Academy Awards Best Picture nomination, the film is also nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay for Heder and Best Supporting Actor for Troy Kotsur, being the first deaf male actor to ever be nominated for an Oscar.

Free screenings will be available on a first-come basis. All the screenings will have open captions to be fully accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing. Some special showings in Los Angeles will have a special Q&A session with writer/director Heder.

For Apple TV+ subscribers, the movie is streaming on the service.

Watch the film. You won’t regret watching this feel-good movie.
