Seventeen-year-old Ruby is the sole hearing member of a deaf family – a CODA, child of deaf adults. Her life revolves around acting as interpreter for her parents and working on the family’s struggling fishing boat every day before school with her father and older brother. 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. Encouraged by her enthusiastic, tough-love choirmaster 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.

I recently sat down via Zoom with the movie stars Emilia Jones, Marlee Matlin and Daniel Durant & director Siân Heder to talk about their involvement in this amazing film!

The Small Axe: Education Interview Part 1 – Sharlene Whyte

Good afternoon my friends. In this edition, we are exploring the final episode of Steve McQueen’s anthology series Small Axe.

Education is the coming of age story of 12-year-old Kingsley, a boy with a fascination for astronauts and rockets. When Kingsley is called to the Headmaster’s office for disruptive behavior in class, he is shocked to discover his transfer to a school for those with “special needs.” Distracted by working two jobs, his parents are unaware of what was an unofficial segregation policy at play, preventing many Black children from having the education they deserve until a group of West Indian women takes matters into their own hands.

This final episode premieres tonight, December 18th on Amazon Prime. In the first part of this two-part interview series, we are talking to the critically acclaimed actress who plays matriarch Agnes Smith. Let’s welcome, Sharlene Whyte!

The War with Grandpa Interviews

For today’s EMExclusive, you are in for a real treat. I got to sit down with the cast of the upcoming comedy The War with Grandpa!

Based on the award-winning book by Robert Kimmel Smith, Sixth-grader Peter is pretty much your average kid-he likes gaming, hanging with his friends and his beloved pair of Air Jordans. But when his recently widowed grandfather Ed moves in with Peter’s family, the boy is forced to give up his most prized possession of all, his bedroom. Unwilling to let such an injustice stand, Peter devises a series of increasingly elaborate pranks to drive out the interloper, but Grandpa Ed won’t go without a fight. Soon, the friendly combatants are engaged in an all-out war with side-splitting consequences. 

To talk about this cool family film, I talk to five of the cast members: Oakes Fegley, Laura Marano, Rob Riggle, Cheech Marin and Jane Seymour!

CW’s All American Hunter Clowdus Talks To Michelle!

I recently did an email interview with Hunter Clowdus, one of Spencer Jame’s teammates JJ Parker from the hit CW Show All American. Let me just say Hunter’s abs are crazy, he’s like the new Archie Andrews this season, always an excuse to show them off. While I didn’t talk about it much last year, due to my ongoing issues with CW Network, one of my favorite new shows last year was the Network’s All American.

Which  l like to call the black version of 90210 or the real life Serious version of Fresh Prince of Bel Air. It’s about a star football player from the troubled neighborhood of Crenshaw who is recruited to play for Beverly Hills High. It’s full of tasty drama and is a nice, welcome departure from the Supernatural, Super Hero stuff I find myself always watching. It returned for it’s 2nd season and airs Monday nights on The CW Network.
