The Farewell

“The Farewell” is a little movie about a Chinese family coming together to say good bye to a dying member under the pretense of wedding. (In China they don’t tell a loved one that they are dying until the last minute.) The film stars Awkwafina as an American raised granddaughter who is still trying to find her way in the world. She cannot understand the Chinese custom. The rest of. the cast are lesser known Chinese actors. All are wonderful, especially the grandmother! She steals the movie and you fall in love with her. Delightful, sweet, funny and charming. You won’t want to miss this one.
