MOVIES

“CODA”

One of the year’s most award-winning and popular films, “CODA” will arrive in theaters and on Apple TV + on Friday after causing a stir at a Sundance virtual film festival in January. Sian Heder’s film, which set a new Sundance record with a $ 25 million acquisition, is about the hearing daughter (Emilia Jones) of a deaf fishing family in Gloucester, Massachusetts. She lives with her parents – played by Marlee Matlin and Troy Kotsur – and her brother, played by Daniel Durant, often performs for them, but dreams of singing – an aspiration far removed from their difficult life. The setup may seem cliché, but little in “CODA” is not crossed with authenticity and heart. “CODA” is both a historical film representing the deaf community and a contagious and fiery coming of age tale.
