How did Cineworld Unlimited members respond to our special preview screening of The Farewell?

The Farewell is one of the most talked-about films of the year. Written and directed by Lulu Wang – and based in part on her own life experiences – this bittersweet drama revolves around a family who find out that their grandmother is terminally ill. Rather than tell her the news, they organise a wedding in an attempt to unite the family one last time before she dies.

A hit at this year’s Sundance London film festival, where it scooped the prestigious Audience Award, The Farewell is showing at Cineworld cinemas now. But last week, we gave Cineworld Unlimited members the chance to see the film early, via one of our special Unlimited screenings. What did they think of it? Here are just some of the reactions on Twitter…

David was impressed with the film’s leading actress, Awkwafina, and thinks she could be in for a successful night at next year’s Academy Awards…

Corinna was moved by how close the family were in the film…

Joe has seen a lot of films through his Cineworld Unlimited membership this year, and thinks The Farewell is up there with the best…

For Graham, the movie provoked a number of different emotions…

Mike said the film delivered more than he had expected, and was another to praise the main star…


Not everyone loved the movie, however – Natalie felt that the pace wasn’t quite right…

And Jez had been hoping for something a little more easy-going…
