The Farewell

In Chinese culture it is customary to keep bad news from someone who is ailing. In The Farewell a family does not tell the grandmother that she is dying. The lengths they go to to see her "one last time" and to keep her health information from her lends itself to a very touching, sometimes funny, story. The performances and writing in this film are outstanding. I liked this film a lot.
