    CODA

    ★★★★

    CODA is a heartfelt, albeit cheesy at many times, film that delves into the experience of a child of deaf adults whose identity is split between her strong love for her family and her newfound passion for music. As someone who has seen La Famille Belier numerous times since it’s release in 2014 (the soundtrack is just the perfect examples of la varietie francaise), I was particularly excited for this Americanized remake.

    A Star Is Born

    ★★★½

    A Star is Born astounds in a stellar first half that I loved only to fall flat in the second with an ending that while melancholic (and tear-jerking) feels a little off and buried in clichés. Lady Gaga is absolutely the irreplaceable star of this otherwise lacking film as she delivers a raw and deeply human performance that is powered by her stand-out voice. Every musical performance, especially the title song "Shallow" and her La Vie en Rose rendition, left…
