The Farewell is a gem that you shouldn’t overlook in 2019

I’m completely blown away by the emotion, the beauty of directory Lulu Wang’s The Farewell. The entire premise is built on lying to a grandparent who’s sick, and actor Awkwafina made me feel every ounce of guilt, frustration, sadness and happiness.

Her range in this film glued together the story, and there’s an authentic vibe felt throughout the movie. The Farewell deals with Chinese traditions that I never heard of, but I was happy to be educated once the end credits ran.

If there’s one huge takeaway, which I can’t stress enough: Do not let The Farewell go under your radar. You need to see this film, and it’s genuinely one of the best of 2019.
