The Farewell (Film)

If you need some entertainment during the holidays, I highly recommend watching “The Farewell”. The story centres Billi, played by the amazing Awkwafina, who travels to Changchun to see her Grandma who has final-stage cancer and doesn’t know about it. The family decided not to tell her and faked a wedding in order to find an excuse for a family reunion. The story about family, Chinese diasporic life and complicated feelings, the film is told in a very moving and authentic, yet also light-hearted way.

The film by director Lulu Wang recently premiered in Swiss cinemas. There is also a nice review of the film on “Loud Murmurs” podcast ep.12 s2 in Chinese.
