"The Farewell is a comedy of warmth and bracing honesty. Simply put, it's one of the best films of the year."
In this little gem of a film, writer and director Lulu Wang tells a very personal, semi-autobiographical story "based on an actual lie." The Farewell explores the yin and yang of family and culture, with a bittersweet but unsentimental, powerful but playful, depiction of a family in crisis. Wang avoids cultural streotypes and judgement, while delivering a heartfelt story with an open, light and masterful touch. She finds the humour in the most unlikely situations, so much so it's sometimes hard to know whether to laugh or cry. The actors all shine in their roles. This is a wonderful film... it slipped under the radar, don't miss it.
