A big congratulations to its producers, French, and to the teams who make it a success abroad. With this film, they look at disability and the experience of caregivers."
Sian Heder's Apple TV+ movie is a remake of the French film 'La Famille Belier', which was a box office hit back in 2014.

Along with its Best Picture win, the film also swept Best Supporting Actor for Troy Kotsur.
Apple TV+ made history at the Oscars 2022 as the first streaming service to win the Academy Award for best picture, bagging the film industry's top honour for Sian Heder's 'CODA'.
The heart-touching drama, which revolves around a daughter of deaf parents who pursues her passion for music, was up against several top contenders including Benedict Cumberbatch's 'The Power of the Dog'.
The film follows 17-year-old Ruby, who is the sole hearing member of a deaf family - a CODA, child of deaf adults. When she joins her high school's choir club, she discovers a gift for singing and soon finds herself drawn to her duet partner Miles and finds herself torn between the obligations she feels to her family and the pursuit of her own dreams.
Kotsur, Emilia Jones, Marlee Matlin, Daniel Durant and Eugenio Derbez are a part of the film's cast. (ANI)
