The Farewell (DVD)
Beautifully bittersweet and comical culture-clash Chinese-American family drama. Winner of the Best Actress Golden Globe.
In this funny, bittersweet tale, US-based Billi reluctantly returns to China to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch has been given mere weeks to live, they’ve decided not to tell the elderly lady herself.
Instead, they celebrate her life behind the guise of an impromptu family wedding.
