Apple Shares Trailer for 'CODA' and Greenlights First French-Language Series

Apple today shared a trailer for its original film "CODA" and greenlit its first-ever French-language original series, titled "Liaison."


CODA is a critically acclaimed Apple TV+ original film that tells the story of a 17-year-old girl named Ruby, played by Emilia Jones, who is the sole hearing member of a deaf family, nicknamed "CODA," or "child of deaf adults."

Gifted with a voice that her parents can't hear, seventeen-year-old Ruby, 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 and working on the family's struggling fishing boat every day before school with her father and older brother. But when Ruby joins her high school's choir club, she discovers a gift for singing and finds herself drawn to her duet partner Miles. Encouraged by her enthusiastic, tough-love choirmaster 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.

"CODA" is written and directed by Siân Heder, who directed and wrote one episode of the ‌‌Apple TV+‌‌ series "Little America" called "The Silence." CODA was presented in the U.S. Dramatic Competition category at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, and in total won four awards at Sundance. The film premieres on ‌Apple TV+‌ and in select theaters later this year on August 13.

In addition, Apple today greenlit "Liaison" as its first French-language original series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Apple: selling illusions... not realities.

Another PBS special. Sheesh, how about some actual good stuff on appletv?
I'm very disturbed by the above thinking. What qualifies as a realistic, good show? Guns and killing? That would definitely qualify as real, I suppose. But that's not what some of us want to see when we turn on the screen to relax and disappear into another world.

Strange that they call it "an Apple Original". The idea is clearly taken from the French movie "The Belier Family" that tells pretty much the same story: A hearing kid with hearing impaired parents, who wants to sing and participate in a musical.

Yeah because the huge popularity of Marvel movies illustrates how much people are sick of illusions.

[USER=1074124]@Ar40[/USER] Yeah well. English is not my first language. Talk to me in French or German, and we'll see. Sorry if I offended your fine sense of language.

I'm assuming that you understood what I wanted to say in the first place, regardless of capital or not capital Os. You may not agree with it, and that's fine by me.
