Give Awkwafina the world! The new A24 movie The Farewell proclaims to be “based on a true lie.” Billi (Awkwafina) finds out that her beloved grandmother is dying from cancer, and the Chinese-born, U.S.-raised woman returns to Changchun to be with her family as they celebrate Nai-Nai’s final weeks. The catch: No one tells Nai-Nai. Instead, the entire family makes up an excuse — her cousin’s wedding — to be by Nai-Nai’s side. Written and directed by Lulu Wang, The Farewell is Awkwafina’s star-making moment: She’s as funny as she is heartbreaking, coming to terms with her upbringing, her emotions, and her batty family. (A24’s determination to make you call your mom continues!) See it in theaters July 12.
