THE FAREWELL

Awkwafina stars as Billi, a young Chinese-American woman living in New York. When she learns her grandmother is dying of cancer she joins her family to return to China. Under the guise of a fake wedding they stealthily say goodbye to their beloved matriarch -- the only person that doesn't know she only has a few weeks to live.  The film is shockingly funny and lively, given the themes of death and goodbyes. But it’s also observant and insightful about the immigrant experience, the cultural gap between generations, and the clash between family traditions.

“An emotional masterpiece that latches onto viewers' hearts and never lets go.”
