Apple debuts a new trailer for their acclaimed ‘Coda’

by Paul Heath

Apple TV+ has provided us with a brand new look at their upcoming original film Coda, a feature that scored highly amongst audiences and critics at this year’s Sundance Film Festival where it had its world premiere.

The film is written and directed by Siân Heder and won four prestigious awards at January’s festival; the Special Jury Award for Ensemble Cast, the Directing Award, the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize. 

The synopsis is as follows: Seventeen-year-old Ruby (Emilia Jones) 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 (Marlee Matlin, Troy Kotsur) and working on the family’s struggling fishing boat every day before school with her father and older brother (Daniel Durant). 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 (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo). Encouraged by her enthusiastic, tough-love choirmaster (Eugenio Derbez) 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.

The film lands on Apple from 13th August. Here’s the new trailer.
