Description

About the film:

Billi's family returns to China under the guise of a fake wedding to stealthily say goodbye to their beloved matriarch -- the only person that doesn't know she only has a few weeks to live.

What the Critics are Saying:

A funny, emotionally intricate and deeply moving tale of severed connections and renewed family ties. Full review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
A tasty cinematic stew of family depression and grief, hugs and laughter, memories and regrets. Full review
Bob Hoose
Plugged In
Awkwafina has gone from rapper to comedic powerhouse, and now, most powerfully, to indie darling in “The Farewell.” It’s one of the year’s sweetest films. Full review
Johnny Oleksinski
New York Post
This is a simple but genius film that sheds light on Chinese culture and philosophy while delivering a doozy of a paradigm shift. Full review
