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

“The Farewell is a comedy of warmth and bracing honesty. Simply put, it’s one of the best films of the year.”
– 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

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
