"The Farewell deftly captures complicated family dynamics with a poignant, well-acted drama that marries cultural specificity with universally relatable themes."- Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
"This smart film deftly mixes comedy and tragedy, and manages to be heartfelt without being cloying or sentimental." - Adam Graham, Detroit News
“Lots of heavy stuff, to be sure, and there are times when The Farewell delivers powerful emotional blows, and we ache for Billi and what she's going through - in large part because Awkwafina's performance is so raw and authentic and in the moment." - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
