Competition: Win ‘The Farewell’ on Blu-ray!

From writer and director Lulu Wang comes the award-winning, smash-hit comedy drama, THE FAREWELL, out on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on 13th January 2020.

Based in part on Wang’s own life experiences, the film stars Awkwafina, in a Golden Globe winning performance, alongside Tzi Ma, Diana Lin, Zhao Shuzhen, Lu Hong, and Jiang Yongbo.

To celebrate the release, we have 2 x Blu-ray copies of the film to give away to one lucky reader!



In this funny, uplifting tale based on an actual lie, Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi (Awkwafina) reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai, has been given mere weeks to live, everyone has decided not to tell Nai Nai herself. To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad. As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations and proprieties, she finds there’s a lot to celebrate: a chance to rediscover the country she left as a child, her grandmother’s wondrous spirit, and the ties that keep on binding even when so much goes unspoken. With The Farewell, writer/director Lulu Wang has created a heartfelt celebration of both the way we perform family and the way we live it, masterfully interweaving a gently humorous depiction of the good lie in action with a richly moving story of how family can unite and strengthen us, often in spite of ourselves.
