THE FAREWELL d. Lulu Wang, 2019 presented by Screen25 Cinema at Harris Academy South Norwood (03 APR 19:45):
Simply one of 2019’s sincerest films, THE FAREWELL paints a beautiful portrait of contemporary American-Chinese family dynamics. Comedienne Awkwafina delivers a Golden Globe-winning performance as Billi, an NYC-based aspiring writer who maintains a close relationship with her Nai Nai (‘paternal grandmother’ in Mandarin) in Changchun, China.
When Nai Nai is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, her family decides to stage a wedding as an excuse to reunite one last time and say their goodbyes back home. However, Nai Nai proves a tough nut to crack, leading to some hilarious and bittersweet family moments.
