“CODA”: Film Review Podcast

Posted: August 16th, 2021 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | No Comments »

Sîan Heder’s film about a conflicted high school girl won most all the major awards at Sundance.

No surprise. For so many reasons, it’s a keeper.

“CODA” can be streamed at Apple TV.

High schooler Ruby (Emilia Jones) is the only hearing member of a Gloucester, Mass fishing family. So, she’s been their communicative connection with the rest of the world since a very young age.

She loves to sing. An opportunity to go to the prestigious Berklee school presents itself.

Her family — mother and father, Tony Kotsur and Marlee Matlin, brother, Daniel Durant — need her to stay, so the they can survive financially.

This film is not only deftly crafted, but the sweet ending is welcome in this troubled world of ours.
