The Farewell (PG) – 2019, USA, 100 mins, subtitles
Director: Lulu Wang
In this funny, uplifting tale based on ‘an actual lie’, Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi (Awkwafina) reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai, has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, everyone has decided not to tell Nai Nai herself. Instead, they schedule an impromptu wedding-reunion, uniting family members so that everyone can surreptitiously say their goodbyes.
Doors open for drinks at 7:00pm. Film at 8:00pm.
