Universally acclaimed comedy drama, directed by Lulu Wang and starring Awkwafina. Winner of the Sundance London 2019 Audience Award.

A headstrong Chinese-American woman returns to China to stealthily say goodbye to her beloved grandmother – the only person that doesn’t know she has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and only has a few weeks to live.

As Billi struggles with her family’s decision to keep grandma in the dark about her own illness, they stage an impromptu wedding to give them an excuse to gather together as a family before she dies.

‘One of the best films of the year’ ★★★★★ The Independent
