Lulu Wang‘s poignant, semi-autobiographical comedy drama burst out of Sundance as the smash-hit of the festival. Heart-wrenchingly turning cultural expectations on their head, The Farewell captures the complicated dynamics of a Chinese family who discover their beloved Grandmother only has a short while to live, and instead of telling her, they decide to schedule a wedding before she dies.
