THE FAREWELL | TRAILER


Die Handlung: Als die in New York aufgewachsene Billi (Awkwafina) von ihren Eltern erfährt, dass ihre geliebte Großmutter Nai Nai in China nur noch kurz zu leben hat, steht ihr Leben Kopf. Die Familie beschließt, Nai Nai im Ungewissen zu lassen und ihr die tödliche Krankheit zu verschweigen. Um die plötzliche Anwesenheit der ganzen Familie plausibel zu erklären, wird kurzerhand eine Spontan-Hochzeit organisiert. Während Billi versucht, die Lüge aufrecht zu erhalten, stößt sie auf Dinge, die ihr eigenes Leben verändern. Es ist die Chance, sowohl das Land ihrer Eltern als auch den wundersamen Geist ihrer Großmutter wieder zu entdecken.

Excuse the post-cry face.. this one really got me 😅 So rarely do I see a piece of story-telling that explores the family dynamics involved with straddling two cultures .. filial duty vs individual ambition & trying to understand your cultural identity as an immigrant amidst it all. Huge congrats to @thumbelulu & the whole cast 🥰 I wish I could kiss my late chinese grandparents on the cheeks..Hope they can see the work I’ve done since to understand half my heritage. Xx #TheFarewell

Last night I finally got the opportunity to see the film “The Farewell” and this film had been on my radar for a couple months now based off all the positive reviews it was receiving. I was hearing some really powerful stuff circling this film and I was expecting a truly emotional and impactful movie. Now after seeing it I can say... this is not a good movie but it is a good story. This is clearly a very personal story for writer/director Lulu Wang, that she needed to tell the world. That aspect of the film I enjoyed, it was a charming little story, done on a small budget and felt personal. There was heart and care put into this film and as an outsider to this story I could listen, pay attention and learn about a different culture and the issues within their world. I was never able to get emotionally invested in this story though. By the end of the film, I was caught off guard when I realized... “oh this is it, this is the big emotional send off. This is the finale to the movie.” I could hear a few people in the theater crying and I knew it hit some people exactly where it was supposed to. I just was not one of them. I gained some insight into Chinese culture but was never moved by the experience. The aspect of the film I did enjoy was the mother of Akwafina’s character Billie. She was by far the most interesting and got into some deeper truths that needed to be explored. Her moments on screen were the only moments I felt any connection to a character. She forced a very interesting conversation at a dinner table scene about their family immigrating to America, the life they left behind, why they left it behind and what the family they left behind thinks about it. That scene had some weight and tension and got to the heart of what this family is going through. The mother also had another great scene with Akwafina where their personal issues are addressed and that scene had some real weight. Those two scenes were the only moments I felt engaged in this picture where I was given some real honest insight. The rest of the film was sort of a cute cover up and honestly one of the most disappointing aspects.....
