From The Booth

Writer/director Lulu Wang based this story on events in her own life. Billi (Awkwafina) returns to China from her home in New York to attend a family wedding, which turns out to be a well-meaning ruse constructed to gather all the family around her dying grandmother. Grandma is unaware of her dire medical state but thrilled to see the family together. We get to witness one of cinema’s best recent portrayals of family, with all the obligations, conflict, love, and history contained within. Awkwafina has dubbed her latest film as “Crazy Middle-class Asians” and it’s Recommended. In English with some Mandarin and subtitles.
