A woman born in China but raised in the U.S. returns for a visit, to find that the beloved matriarch of the family has only a few weeks left to live. Not wanting to upset the elderly woman, the entire family has agreed to keep this a secret from her. To explain why family members are gathering they expedite a wedding. An uplifting and funny story about family bonds, one, as claimed in the credits, that is based on an actual lie.
In The Farewell, Wang builds a funny, touching and vital film about what makes a family in any culture. Its simply stunning. David Fear, Rolling Stone
This is a viewing experience to be treasured. It is one of the very best films of 2019. Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
