The Farewell (PG)

Awkwafina starring in The Farewell standing with her family around her

A powerful culture clash drama littered with brilliant comic moments.

Starring Awkwafina as Billi, a young woman living in New York who moved to America from China with her parents when she was a child. She is horrified to find out that her grandma, still living in China, has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and she and her parents but travel to China to say goodbye for the last time.

This is an exploration of love between family, what cultural identity means and what we truly define as our home. It's a rich and poignant family drama with a captivating performance from Awkwafina.
