Apple Original Films has announced that “CODA” will be re-released in theaters for a limited theatrical run following its Academy Award nominations, including a nomination for Best Picture.
The film will be presented in major cities across the U.S. and London, free of charge and with open captions, beginning Friday, February 25 through Sunday, February 27.
“CODA” is the first motion picture starring a predominantly Deaf cast to be honored with a Best Picture Oscar nomination, and with a nomination for Best Supporting Actor, “CODA” star Troy Kotsur is the first Deaf male actor to ever be nominated for an Oscar. Additionally, the film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay, marking the first for writer/director Siân Heder.
“CODA” first premiered in theaters and globally on Apple TV+ in August 2021. Prior to premiering in theaters, the Apple Original film first debuted at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival where it landed four awards, including the Special Jury Award for Ensemble Cast, the Directing Award, the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize.
Since its global debut, “CODA” has received a continuous streak of acclaim and honors. In addition to three Academy Award nominations, the film was recently recognized with an AFI Award, BAFTA Award nominations, a PGA Award nomination and historic SAG Award nominations – making it the first film with a predominantly Deaf cast to receive a SAG Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. “CODA” has also earned nominations for an NAACP Image Award, and nine nominations for the Hollywood Critics Association Awards.
Here’s how the movie is described: 17-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.
“CODA” is written and directed by Siân Heder, produced by Vendome Pictures and Pathé, with Philippe Rousselet, Fabrice Gianfermi, Patrick Wachsberger and Jérôme Seydoux serving as producers, and Ardavan Safaee and Sarah Borch-Jacobsen as executive producers.
“CODA” is now streaming on Apple TV+.
