Bring the whole family—it’s PG! Show the next gen how good the movies can be. #TheFarewell
Lulu Wang’s #TheFarewell is the most exciting hit movie of the summer, but it came together after she nearly lost all hope of making the film. Our interview with the filmmaker: https://t.co/jTQdnHe4Sz
I had a great (and cathartic) chat with @Awkwafina about #TheFarewell, learning Chinese, and what it was like for both of us to lose a parent. https://t.co/HbrJNEQ03y
From #TheFarewell to #RussianDoll, women are making amazing TV about death, grief, and loss. https://t.co/qWayLY7ohw
Lulu Wang on bringing the story to life: "The first question I would get asked is 'Is this an American film or a Chinese film?' It was a very confronting question because it's like 'Well, are you American or are you Chinese?' " #TheFarewell
Thank you to everyone who came tonight, and to those who watched the live-stream. And a huge thank you to Lulu Wang for the enlighting chat about your breathtaking film #TheFarewell.
Lulu Wang (@thumbelulu
) on pitching #TheFarewell: "It was challenging to get people to see what this film actually is. It's from a place of in-between – it's both and neither – but it's really just a human story."
came to #Toronto to present masterpiece #TheFarewell, 100% on #RottenTomatoes. Screening was sold-out completely with a crazy rush line. #Awkwafina delivers an authentic, heartfelt performance in this story of being in-between identities and familial bond. https://t.co/EgndN8gjRI
Thank you @TIFF_NET
for hosting the Canadian premiere of #TheFarewell. It opens exclusively this Friday at Varsity Cinemas in Toronto and Fifth Avenue in Vancouver, with additional cities opening July 26! https://t.co/bRZy8311Ob
Just saw #TheFarewell and at our first glimpse of @awkwafina
, the person next to us exclaimed “SHE’S SO BEAUTIFUL!” and you know, sometimes even the @drafthouse
’s strict no talking rules can’t stop people from telling the dang truth.
is also doing a Q&A after tomorrow’s 7pm screening of #TheFarewell at Varsity — so duh I’m going again. See you there? #GoldOpen
Whoa! Toronto! Don’t miss out on this opportunity! @thumbelulu
is doing a Q&A after tomorrow’s 7pm screening of @thefarewell
at the Varsity. Opening weekend is crucial, y’all!!

So #TheFarewell was really great and robbed me emotionally, I now need many drinks and a sheet mask.
THE FAREWELL is another perfect example why storytelling is SO important. I’m feeling so moved and SEEN! 💯😭 Thank you, @thumbelulu
for sharing your story and to the cast for an incredible performance. @thefarewell
Update: related to so many parts of the #TheFarewell, cried as expected, can’t wait to see more from @thumbelulu
Also, definitely watching this with my mom sometime.
I keep on thinking about how I didn’t have a chance to say goodbye to the Grandpa who raised me and I can’t stop crying again. #TheFarewell
Q&A w/ Lulu Wang: a white man asked about film references and says he can think of a few influences, Lulu asked him to name, he proceeded to list off all the asian male directors, Lulu didn’t hesitate to point that out, and i might have clapped a bit too long #TheFarewell
#TheFarewell is one of the best movies I’ve seen all year & #NaiNai deserves an Oscar for her performance! It’s been just a year since Crazy Rich Asians & Ocean’s 8 and @awkwafina
has knotted 3 stellar performances,… https://t.co/j84lXinhbf
film festival number 2 #TheFarewell
#TheFarewell - once again, a good movie that gets overhyped by critics into the “great” category.
Go out and see #TheFarewell and #BlindedByTheLightMovie
Went to @TIFF_NET
’s #Canadian premiere of @thumbelulu
’s #TheFarewell and I’m about to leave everything to go take care of my grandma. I was in tears the whole way through and I’m so glad there was a sold out crowd to experience this beautiful film! https://t.co/OoKYLR0eN1
