SUNDANCE Review: ‘Coda’ Is A Lovely, Quirky Story We Don’t See Enough

Coda is an entertaining, funny, heartfelt look at a family. Ruby (Emilia Jones) is a teenager and the only hearing member of her family and she becomes torn between being there for her family or her dream of becoming a singer. Ruby has long been the defender and interpreter for her family, both for phone calls, orders, and working on their fishing boat. She initially had no dreams outside of her life, but when she sees a boy she likes signs up for choir and she follows suit, new opportunities are set in motion.
