“Bittersweet, touching and always funny, The Farewell is lived-in from top to toe.”~Dan Mecca, The Film Stage

Aroview: Widely acclaimed comedy-drama of family dysfunction, based on the real-life experiences of Chinese writer director Lulu Wang.

A Chinese-born American returns to her family in Changchun to discover that her beloved grandma has only weeks to live, and the rest of her family have decided not to tell her. A satisfying, unsentimental drama providing an astute portrayal of the immigrant cultural experience.
