CODA (2021) PG-13 [Drama, Music]



The next NoVES Movie Series Discussion event will be held on Saturday, September 18th. 

This is a movie showing via Zoom followed by a discussion.  It will start

by broadcasting the movie so that we may watch it together. The movie

itself is 1 hour 51 minutes.

This movie is available on Apple TV+.  If you have already seen the movie, you may join the Zoom Meeting at around 9:10 PM to participate in the discussion.



I was looking for something uplifting to restart NoVES Movie Nights.   CODA is definitely that.  It uses deaf actors to play deaf characters, including Marlee Matlin, a pioneering deaf actress whose break-out role was in Children of a Lesser God in 1986.


IMDB includes this summary of the movie:

As a CODA (Child of Deaf Adults) Ruby is the only hearing person in her deaf family. When the family's fishing business is threatened, Ruby finds herself torn between pursuing her love of music and her fear of abandoning her parents.

And this review by Jason McFiggins…

CODA is hilarious and awkward and touching. Part coming of age story about finding your voice, part family drama, and all incredibly moving and effective. So rich and authentic, every scene will either make you laugh or make you cry. I felt my heart start to race about 30 minutes in, knowing I was experiencing something great. CODA is simply as beautiful as movies get. Emilia Jones will capture your heart, and it's remarkable how effortlessly she carries this movie. Keep an eye on her, she's about to break out.

The Zoom link for the movie showing is included below.  I look forward to showing this movie and the discussion.




Randy Best (he,him) is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
