The Farewell

Double Feature with BOOKSMART (5:00, 9:15)

2019 • dir Lulu Wang w/Awkwafina, Tzi Ma, Gil Perez-Abraham, Diana Lin, Ines Laimins, Shuzhen Zhao • 98 min • DCP

On the cusp of becoming Hollywood’s newest “it” comedian, Awkwafina turns in a refreshingly honest performance in this poignant comedy. A Chinese family spread out across the world comes together to celebrate the life of their matriarch who has a terminal illness – a fact they go to great lengths to keep from her.

Staff Pick! Casey, Dave

– Clarisse Loughrey, Independent (UK)

“It’s a film that pulls off a quiet miracle: it breaks your heart, and leaves you happy.”
– Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
