The 2021 film CODA follows Ruby, a teenager who is the only hearing person in her family and is isolated from society due to the circumstances of her parents and her brother. The title of the film is an acronym for “child of deaf adults.” That’s why the CODA cast consists mostly of deaf actors and actresses. It is the remake of the 2014 French film La Famille Bélier and was released on Apple TV+ on August 13, 2021.
The comedy-musical drama film is directed by the American screenwriter and director Sian Heder. It received an 8.0 rating on IMDb and was nominated for and won a number of awards, including the Critics’ Choice and Golden Globe Awards. Let’s look at the CODA cast in more detail now!
