This is interesting. “CODA,” a movie everyone who’s seen it loves, is finally getting a major marketing push from Apple Films.
Apple is putting “CODA” into major market theaters across the US and in London for FREE the weekend of February 25th. Of course they will be close captioned (and I wish all studios including Apple would close caption review links also).
Directed by Sian Heder, “CODA” is nominated for three Oscars: Best Picture, Adapted Screenplay, and Supporting Actor (Troy Kotsur.)
The film premiered at Sundance 2021 and was finally released mid year on Apple Plus TV. But otherwise, it’s had a very low profile. This is a major shot across the Oscar bow by Apple to try and get Academy Award wins. Audiences at a special showing in Los Angeles will have the opportunity to be part of a live Q&A with the cast and writer/director Siân Heder, which will have translators in ASL.
You never know. This might work.
First come, first served. If you love good movies, and want to take your teens to something you can each enjoy and discuss, “CODA” is it.
