U.S. Trailer: Awkwafina In “The Farewell”

Us Trailer Awkwafina In The Farewell

In multiple summary pieces from this year’s Sundance Film Festival, no feature scored better than Lulu Wang‘s emotional dramedy “The Farewell” starring Awkwafina.

The sweet and melancholy film follows a Chinese-American returning to Changchun, China to be close to her dying grandmother. But there’s a twist: the grandmother is unaware of her own diagnosis.

A24 picked up the project for U.S. distribution with the project set to open in cinemas on July 12th and today they’ve released the film’s first trailer.
