Part of Film
Directed by Lulu Wang | 2019

With Awkwafina, Tzi Ma, Diana Lin

“An incredibly satisfying meal of a film”
—Vulture

Based, we are informed, “on an actual lie,” Lulu Wang’s wonderfully warm, bittersweet look at the intricacies of family dynamics features a bravura breakout performance from Awkwafina as a writer living in New York who travels back to her hometown in China for a wedding celebration. The lie? The wedding is really just a pretext for family members to say goodbye to their beloved grandmother who, as everyone but the old woman herself knows, has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. What plays out is a by turns gently humorous and achingly tender reflection on home, heritage, and the ways in which family bonds can stretch across cultures, distance, and generations.

This film has closed captions, a vision impaired audio soundtrack, and a hearing impaired audio soundtrack available. For more information, visit our Accessibility page or inquire at the cinema box office.
