The Farewell

The Farewell ★★★½

Really beautifully expressed narrative. Lingering moments weave into the swelling social tableua that is China, the waking giant. Really smart framing, some nifty glasswork. Really disappointed by the end cut Wang went with, might need to chew on it more. Awkwafina was fucking fantastic, it's insane how boring her role was in Ocean's Eight now that I can compare. I hope to see more from Lulu Wang very soon.
