Synopsis: In writer-director Lulu Wang’s THE FAREWELL, Billi (Awkwafina) returns to her extended family in China and finds that, although everyone knows their beloved matriarch Nai Nai (Zhao Shuzhen) has been given just weeks to live, they have decided it best not to tell Nai Nai herself. Instead they gather under the guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered in new homes abroad. As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations, she finds that there’s a lot to celebrate: a chance to rediscover the country she left as a child, her grandmother’s wondrous spirit, and the ties that keep on binding even when so much goes unspoken. Based on an actual lie.
