The Farewell is a comedy-drama film written and directed by Lulu Wang.
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's decision to hide the truth from her grandmother.
Hailed as a big, warm, lovely hug of a film, this is a must-see.
