Q&A with Lulu Wang and Alison Willmore

Writer-director Wang draws from her own life experience in this funny, frank, and heartfelt diaspora drama, a Sundance sensation starring Crazy Rich Asians’s Awkwafina. Chinese-American writer Billi, en route to a family reunion to Gangchun, must unhappily play along with her parents’ plan to conceal a terminal cancer diagnosis from her beloved grandmother. A breakout performance for Awkwafina, who reveals a real capacity for pathos in this culture-clash tragicomedy.
