The Farewell

November 5 @ 12:00 am

The Farewell

Actress and rapper Awkafina (“Oceans 8”) stars in this dramedy about a Chinese-American writer who returns to China to say goodbye to her beloved grandmother, whose doctors have told the family that she doesn’t have long to live. The autobiographical story is the second film from Lulu Wang, whose parents immigrated from China to Miami when she was six-years-old. She’s found an ideal avatar in Awkwafina, about whom the New York Post raved, “has gone from rapper to comedic powerhouse, and now, most powerfully, to indie darling … It’s one of the year’s sweetest films.”
