I had the luxury of pre-screening the movie CODA, an original Apple movie, on Apple TV, thanks to @Gofobo.
This heartwarming film is about a teen named Ruby who, with some encouragement from her high school choir teacher, chose to follow her dream of becoming a singer and attending Julliard College of music.I found it heartwarming, encouraging and supportive of manifest destiny theory.
In the movie Ruby tries to gain her families acceptance of her dream but finds it difficult because she is the only hearing member in her family. Her older brother, mother, and father are all deaf.
They have no idea of her talents and in their world sound does not exist. Her family operates a small fishing operation where she serves as their only link to the world of sound.
Ruby’s family doesn’t understand her love of music or singing and she does not know how to get them to relate but based on the support of her peers and her teacher they soon learn that she has talent and choose, in the end, to support her endeavors.
Along her journey Ruby even helps her family to understand that all though limited they too should pursue their dreams of expanding their fishing operation and encourages them to try because despite being deaf they are capable, they are opinionated, and they are intelligent enough to do so. Her family feels like they can’t deal with those who can hear but guess what ever since she was born they have done it.She encourages them and just like her they too must try in order to fulfill their dream despite feeling incapable or insecure.
I enjoyed the movie it was an Sundance film festival award winning film and I can see why. It moves very smoothly and you hardly notice the long length. There are so many lessons involved. The movie contains elements of love, understanding, compassion and acceptance. It also highlights some of life’s important decisions like the choice to pursue a dream or go to college.
The main messages I feel is this “trying is the first step towards making a dream come true”.
“You can never never know if you have what it takes if don’t try.”
This is a great movie to inspire and encourage people to pursue their dreams. At times it may be hard you may feel you are not good enough but if you try the universe sometimes will make your way. It will help you see things differently than you would if you didn’t try. I believe this is called manifest destiny.
You must give effort despite being afraid or unsure so that the universe can give you guidance and show you more options.Once you try you will begin to understand that failure is only one option not the only option.
Check out his heartwarming movie on Apple TV. Watch it with a loved ones and be inspired. Maybe you too will gain the courage to manifest your dreams.You must try.
