The Farewell(2019)

Directors : Lulu Wang

Synopsis :

A headstrong Chinese-American woman returns to China when her beloved grandmother is given a terminal diagnosis. Billi struggles with her family's decision to keep grandma in the dark about her own illness as they all stage an impromptu wedding to see grandma one last time.

Our View :

A favorite at this year's Sundance, The Farewell packs an emotional punch, with enough comedy sprinkled in to deal with themes of life and death.
