Film starring deaf actors is getting buzz this Oscar season

CODA tells the story of a girl who is the only hearing person in a deaf family and features a nearly all deaf cast.

A top contender for a nomination this Oscar season, the film - which takes its name from the acronym for children of deaf adults - has been celebrated by disability rights advocates for its honest and complex portrayal of deaf culture.
