CODA

CODA ★★★★

What a gift this film is! And not just for giving Marlee Matlin her best role in years. It's always so refreshing to see films enter worlds too little seen or understood. But it's also welcome when it is done with warmth and compassion which are both here in abundance.

I found it very moving. This is, in part, due to Emilia Jones' voice as both a singer and actress. This seems to be the year for young actors to really blow me away. I am a sucker for kids tbh. However, I would be remiss to not mention Troy Kotsur who is rightfully being nominated left and right for his outstanding supporting work.

Sometimes it's the gentle films that bring the most heart.
