The Ace Hotel Is Hosting The Premiere Of A Sundance Film And You’re Invited

An all-around laugh-out-loud yet uplifting tale that will warm a special place in your heart!

Chances are, this movie will have you running to your family with open arms. On Wednesday, June 26, put on your best red carpet look and head over to the Ace Hotel in DTLA for cocktail hour and the Los Angeles premiere of The Farwell — a tear-jerking story “based on an actual lie” from the real life of writer and director Lulu Wang. And we can’t reiterate this enough… don’t forget to bring a pack of pocket tissues.

Chinese-born, U.S. raised Billi learns upon her return to Changchun that the entire family received news that their beloved matriarch, Nai Nai (grandma), has been given mere weeks to live. Billi has a hard time coming to terms with her family’s decision to not relay the news to Nai Nai herself. Whether you’re left crying tears of laughter or of despair, the critically acclaimed Sundance film is the perfect depiction of how family can unite and strengthen us — though the journey may not always be a painless one.

Critics are saying that the movie is…

Chucks sentimentality and melodramatics out the window. It’s funny, bittersweet and full of unexpected left turns.
