"The lovely paradox of THE FAREWELL is that everyone in it tries to hide their feelings as long as they can, yet their story goes straight to your heart."
Joe Morgenstern - WALL STREET JOURNAL

"THE FAREWELL says a whole lot about grief, guilt and determining what's important in life, while still providing its share of laughs. "
Brian Lowry - CNN.COM

"Extraordinary on every level, Lulu Wang's THE FAREWELL starring an award-caliber Awkwafina builds a funny, touching and vital film about what makes a family in any culture, leaving you with cathartic tears. "
Peter Travers - ROLLING STONE

"Wang turns her frustration and bewilderment into a gentle exploration of the cultural differences and generational schisms that have, over the years, opened up within Nai Nai's extended family. "
A.O. Scott - NEW YORK TIMES
