The Farewell

The film follows a Chinese family who, when they discover their beloved grandmother has only a short while left to live, decide to keep her in the dark and schedule an impromptu wedding to gather before she passes. Billi, feeling like a fish out of water in her home country, struggles with the family decision to hide the truth from her grandmother. The Farewell is a comedy of warmth and bracing honesty. Simply put, it’s one of the best films of the year. 1 hr. 40 min.
