Let’s Talk Movies: The Farewell

Thursday, April 15, 2021

Join us to chat about this award-winning comedy-drama about a family coming together to say goodbye to their beloved matriarch—without telling her about her terminal illness.

Library staff love more than just books—we’re movie-lovers, too! Watch a movie on Kanopy—a streaming service that is free for Menlo Park residents with your library card—and then join us to talk about how much you love (or really don’t love) it!

This month, we will talk about The Farewell, written and directed by Lulu Wang, and based in part upon her life experiences. 

In this funny, heartfelt story, Billi’s (Awkwafina) family returns to China under the guise of a fake wedding to stealthily say goodbye to their beloved matriarch—the only person that doesn’t know she only has a few weeks to live.

We gather online to talk movies on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
