Australia in the near future. It is the Christmas Eve, eight days after the end of World War III. The country is almost empty, devastated, and cold. There are only few survivors, waiting to die. Sound of sirens is the only noise one could hear. Several people around the globe receive a message from an unknown sender. For Kate (Cara Culligan), the signal is received through an unplugged radio. That brings hope in her desperate heart and she embarks by foot on a mission to find the mysterious broadcaster. The cinematography of the “Black Garden” is decided in a depressing monochromic style. That perfectly matches the apocalyptic topic of the film that is based on Dante’s Inferno - the 9th circle of hell.
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.
