Curro is a kitchen robot salesman who dreams of making it big in the financial world. After a marital crisis, and despite being burdened by debt, he makes a promise he cannot possibly keep: if his 9-year-old son, Nico, gets straight A’s in school, then Curro says he will take Nico on an unforgettable summer holiday. When Nico fulfils his part of the deal, father and son set out on a journey that will change their lives.
The Best Summer of My Life is an enchanting comedy about our flights of fancy in showering our loved ones with untold joys. Curro’s greatest gift to Nico is to dream with abandon and yet not forget who he is, bringing a message of resilience and love.

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.
