The big winner of 2021 Sundance is a remake of The Bélier Family, but it’s even better. Emilia Jones plays the Ruby, whose life is a bit more complicated than average, as she is the only hearing member of her family. The family makes a living from fishing and it is essential for Ruby to act as the interpreter between her family and the world, that sometimes exploits disabilities. However, the young girl also loves singing, and she is good at it. The Mexican music teacher arriving to the school wants to convince her that she has a place at the Berklee College in Boston, one of the best music schools in the world.
The director was born on 1977 in Cambridge, USA.
