In this funny, uplifting tale based on an actual lie, Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi (Awkwafina, “Crazy Rich Asians”) reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai, has been given mere weeks to live, everyone has decided not to tell Nai Nai herself. To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad. As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations, she finds there’s a lot to celebrate: a chance to rediscover the country she left as a child, her grandmother’s wondrous spirit, and the ties that keep on binding even when so much goes unspoken. A heartfelt celebration of both the way we perform family and the way we live it, masterfully interweaving a gently humorous depiction of the good lie in action with a richly moving story of how family can unite and strengthen us, often in spite of ourselves. --Rose Theatre

When each of us contains multitudes, "The Farewell" suggests, home is everywhere, or anywhere we happen to be." - Washington Post

“A remarkably cohesive ensemble movie; every member of the family gets a chance to shine.”– The Los Angeles Times
