And, rounding out the eighteen-song track list are score selections by composer Marius de Vries (Romeo + Juliet, Sucker Punch).

The Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh "CODA" has been universally lauded by critics as "refreshing," "authentic" and "the heartwarming," "must-see," "hit of the summer."

Apple Original Film "CODA" made its world premiere at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival where it won the U.S. Grand Jury Prize, U.S. Dramatic Audience Award, and a Special Jury Ensemble Cast Award. Director and writer Sian Heder also received Best Director in the U.S. Dramatic Section. In "CODA," 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.
