The Farewell (USA, comedy-drama/comedy, 98 min., rated PG) When they discover their beloved grandmother has only a short while left to live, a Chinese-American family decide to keep her in the dark and schedule an impromptu wedding to gather before she passes. Granddaughter Billi (Awkwafina), feeling like a fish out of water in her home country, struggles with the family's decision to hide the truth from her grandmother.“Has some beautiful, truthful things to say about how love persists across the oceans… Watching Billi, at a formative point in her life, comprehend the influence her grandmother has had on her while fighting her natural instinct to literally say goodbye makes for powerful filmmaking.” –
