CODA is an English adaptation of the French comedy-drama La Famille Bélier, which is written and directed by Sian Heder. CODA won Academy Awards for Best Movie, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars 2022. The film stars Emilia Jones, Eugenio Derbez, and Marlee Matlin. This is about a hearing child in a deaf family who finds herself torn between pursuing her love of music and her family’s reliance on her to be their connection to the outside world.
The film opens with the story of high school senior Ruby Rossi as she juggles her familial responsibilities with her own ambitions. CODA stands for a child of deaf adults, and Ruby’s two parents and brother are deaf. While having a disability is a struggle in a world reluctant to accommodate, they are also a fishing business and struggle to make ends meet as a working-class family.
Emilia Jones’s Ruby Rossi Highlights
Emilia Jones is the eye of the film, She connects the character Ruby Rossi with fearless, brave, and insecure. The emotion of a teenager is somehow conflicting and confusing in Emilia. The character of Ruby is well shaped and portrayed very carefully. Young women can often be misrepresented and shallowly portrayed, more often than not reflecting either the extreme can-do-it-all saint or the selfish airhead. And although Ruby does struggle to do-it-all, she also fails a considerable amount. She’s selfish a reasonable amount and selfless just the right amount.
CODA Is Worth Watching?
CODA is a coming-of-age story of a family breaking the bonds of codependency. The film is very touching, and a lot of enjoyable experience. The complete film is a package of love, sacrifice, courage, and genuineness. CODA is one of the worth watching films.
