The Farewell ★★★★½

“isn’t it wrong to lie?”

family is so simplistically complex: grief, joy and despair are often all mixed together. this was so rhythmically calming, and i can’t remember the last time i’ve heard an audience burst into laughter and then stop on a dime to reflect. this is skillfully made and every performance deserves recognition, but as i wrap up my review i’m gonna leave you with three words: awkwafina academy award
