Rotten Tomatoes


A joint presentation by the Shuswap Film Society and Salmar Theatre.

A Chinese family discovers their grandmother has only a short while to live and they decide not to tell her. Instead they schedule a wedding to gather the family together. The script is a lovely balance between drama and comedy, grief and guilt, and love and respect for tradition. Winner of Best Film at 5 festivals to date, including Audience Choice at Sundance. Starring Awkwafina (from Crazy Rich Asians).
