On this edition of EMExclusives, we are going to dive into a new unique film coming to Apple TV+ & theatres this Friday called CODA. 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!
