    The best actors in CODA weren't acting:
    One of the strengths of CODA was that the deaf people were played by deaf people -- rather than actors pretending to be deaf.  

    It let them act without acting -- they were simply playing a role but were essentially just being themselves.
    Another great movie, Glory Road, about building the Texas SW basketball team that broke the racial barrier, did similar:  instead hiring actors to play basketball players, they brought in basketball players.

    In both cases, the acting was magnificent -- since it wasn't acting.
