Marlee Matlin, Troy Kotsur and Daniel Durant lead the film’s deaf cast alongside Emilia Jones in Sian Heder’s Sundance crowd-pleaser
“CODA” stars Jones as a teenager who, despite her family’s uncertainty, decides to try out for the school choir. Inspired by her teacher (Eugenio Derbez) and a cute classmate (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo), she makes an effort to continue singing even as she finds herself torn between her passion and her responsibilities to her family.
“CODA” is based an original screenplay from Heder. The film was originally a French movie called “The Bélier Family” from 2014, though Heder’s film actually uses deaf talent rather than hearing actors playing deaf.
Apple will release “CODA” via Apple TV+ and in theaters on Aug. 13. See the first trailer above, and check out TheWrap’s interview with the cast and filmmakers of the movie out of Sundance here.
