“The Farewell” pays delightful, insightful homage to the facades and pretenses nearly everyone adopts in the name of compassion.
Ann Hornaday
A funny, emotionally intricate and deeply moving tale of severed connections and renewed family ties.
Joe Morgenstern
Awkwafina has gone from rapper to comedic powerhouse, and now, most powerfully, to indie darling in “The Farewell.” It’s one of the year’s sweetest films.
Johnny Oleksinski
New York Post
This is a simple but genius film that sheds light on Chinese culture and philosophy while delivering a doozy of a paradigm shift.
