After winning “Best Picture” at the Oscar Awards this past Sunday night, Apple is said to be in the process of re-releasing its Apple TV+ movie “CODA” into movie theaters.
According to Bloomberg, the film will be placed in 600 movie theaters across the U.S. starting on Friday, April 1. It has also been said there will be captions for deaf viewers in the audience so they can see the spoken dialog on the screen.
This is how Apple explains the plot of the film:
“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.”
The film was originally released in August 2021 and Apple purchased the film at the Sundance Film Festival for $25 million.
“CODA” won three Oscars this year, which included best-adapted screenplay by director Siân Heder, best supporting actor by Troy Kotsur and best picture. Kotsur was the first deaf actor to ever win the award.
Of course, those who are not wanting to go to the theater to watch the film can stream it through Apple TV+ on the Apple TV app.
Apple TV+ currently costs $4.99 a month after a week-long free trial (only for new users) and the Apple TV app to stream it on is available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, select Smart TVs, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Google TV, XBOX One, XBOX One S, XBOX Series X&S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
