Sundance’s CODA to premiere in theaters and Apple TV+ on Aug. 13

CUPERTINO, Calif. — This year’s Sundance hit, CODA, was picked up by Apple Original Films for around $25 million in January. This made it one of the biggest success stories of the 2021 virtual Sundance Film Festival and one of the most successful films in Sundance history.

‘CODA’ is an acronym for Child of Deaf Adults. The film was included in the U.S. Dramatic Competition category at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival and went on to be honored with an unprecedented four awards at the festival: the Special Jury Award for Ensemble Cast, the Directing Award, the Audience Award, and the Grand Jury Prize.

CODA will debut in theaters and on Apple TV+ on Friday, August 13.

The film is about Ruby, the only hearing member of a deaf family. At 17, she works mornings before school to help her parents and brother keep their Gloucester, Massachusetts fishing business afloat. But in joining her high school’s choir club, Ruby finds herself drawn to both her duet partner and her latent passion for singing. Her enthusiastic, tough-love choirmaster hears something special and encourages Ruby to consider music school at Berklee and a future beyond fishing, leaving her torn between obligation to family and pursuit of her dream.
