Episode 59 – Coda (2021), Coda (2019), and Coda (2016)
What better way to celebrate the Oscars, now a month past due, than by watching a movie that shares a title with the best picture winner? Jenner and Hsien take a look at CODA (2021), an acronym standing for Child of Deaf Adults, and also the concluding passage of a piece of music. It's about a young woman pursuing a music career while trying to help her parents with communication. Nate, on the other hand, watched the epic Coda (2019), a Patrick Stewart vehicle with Katie Holmes as his... er, love interest. Yeah. He's a pianist with stage fright, she's a journalist who worships him. It's amazing.
