Marlee Matlin is a famous Deaf actress.

She was the youngest and first Deaf lead actress to win the Oscar in 1987.

She recently starred in the heartbreaking "CODA."

The film was a hit at the virtual Sundance Film Festival.

Apple paid a whopping $25 million to aquire the rights.

Matlin is hoping studios will take notice.

The film features a primarily Deaf cast played by Deaf actors.

They all communicate with ASL, which is subtitled, not translated.

This allows audiences to recognize ASL as a language separate from English.
