What is CODA? Meaning explained

CODA IS the film that EVERYONE is talking about right now.

But some moviegoers may not know what the film's title stands for.

What does CODA mean?

The title is an abbreviation for "Child of Deaf Adults," a term often used in Deaf culture, 

The film stars Emilia Jones as the eponymous CODA, the only hearing member of a deaf family.

Eugenio Derbez, Troy Kotsur, Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Daniel Durant, and Marlee Matlin feature in supporting roles.

After winning big at the SAG Awards, the dramedy is now up for multiple categories at the BAFTA Awards, the Golden Globes, and the Oscars.

What's more, CODA cast member Troy has been individually nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Academy Awards.

His nod is historical because it marks the first time a deaf man has earned an Oscar nomination for acting.

After auditioning for the Sound of Metal and not landing it, Troy told The New York Times that he thinks CODA is an even bigger "blessing".
