The award-winning movie CODA is showing at the Mariemont Theater. CODA (Child of Deaf Adult) features deaf actors and received “rave reviews” at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2021. Director Sian Heder crafted a crowd-pleasing tearjerker whose commercial promise sparked a bidding war between theatrical distributors and deep-pocketed streamers. The movie was released in theaters and on Apple+ TV on August 13. USA Today summarized the reception, “Propelled by its powerful inclusivity of the deaf community, it’s a refreshing reboot of the traditional teen romance and coming-of-age story.” The film is expected to continue being shown at the Mariemont Theater for several more weeks as of August 29.
