Billi and her parents Haiyan and Jian emigrated to New York City from their native Changchun, China twenty-five years ago when Billi was only six. Billi is struggling finding her place in life and by association financially, she aspiring to be a writer, but the Guggenheim fellowship for which she applied and on which she placed much of her hopes has been denied. Billi maintains a close relationship with her paternal grandmother - her "Nai Nai" - back in Changchun via the occasional visit and frequent telephone calls. As is Chinese custom, Billi and Nai Nai tell each other little white lies both to save face and to prevent the other from worrying about the painful truth. Those little white lies turn into one big lie when Haiyan and his older brother Haibin, who emigrated to Japan years ago, learn that Nai Nai has just been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer with the prognosis of only months to live, the diagnosis and prognosis which they and the rest of their extended family that know decide to keep from Nai Nai herself. In a guise to spend one last time together as a family with Nai Nai, they devise a wedding, that of Haibin's only offspring, Hao Hao, to Aiko, his Japanese girlfriend of three months, as an event, with Nai Nai to be the chief organizer in Changchun. Haiyan and Jian don't want Billi to go to the fake wedding in being the weak link that may tell Nai Nai the truth in her western mores. Against her parents' wishes, Billi does end up flying to Changchun for the gathering in her want to say goodbye to her Nai Nai. As time goes on, it may be difficult not only for Billi but for others to maintain the ruse. But Billi and the others may also come to a better perspective of what is best for all concerned under the circumstances.

I had the privilege to see this film at the New York Film Festival. I have been a fan of the director's work since I saw "The Royal Tenenbaums" in 2002. This film is a delightful, wonderful film. I have seen it three times, and I will continue to see it. I was truly amazed by the cast and crew. The cast was outstanding. The story was perfect. The dialogue was very sharp. The director did an excellent job of portraying the characters. The writing was very clever. The direction was superb. The production values were top notch. I was also very impressed by the photography. I was also very impressed by the special effects. I think the only thing that could have made this film better would have been a few more scenes. The first hour of the film was very slow. I think the director did an excellent job of pacing the film. The second hour was very interesting. I thought the third hour was very entertaining. I think the fourth hour was very interesting. I also thought the last hour was very entertaining. The film is very entertaining, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good story. I was very pleased with the film, and I would recommend it to anyone.

This movie is so very different from the rest of the "Tropical" movies. It's a very funny, well-written movie. It has a very original story. The actors all do a great job. The soundtrack is great as well. The only problem I had with this movie was that it was a bit too long. The story seemed to drag on a bit too long. The only reason I gave it a 9 out of 10 is because of the great acting. If you're a fan of comedy, I highly recommend you see this movie.

I was fortunate enough to see this film at the Toronto International Film Festival. It is one of the most engaging and entertaining films I've ever seen. The story is so simple yet so profound. The actors were brilliant. The film is funny, dramatic and tragic. It is a film that has a lot of depth and it is a film that you will be able to relate to. It's a film that you will love and that you will want to watch over and over again. I highly recommend this film.

A beautiful story about the real struggle of an entire family to keep the family together. I was amazed by how this story was told. I felt like I was right there in the family and the way the family was presented was so real. The acting was so good and the music was amazing. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves to laugh and cry and has a heart.

I had the pleasure of seeing this film at the Los Angeles Film Festival and it was wonderful. It was a very moving and intelligent film that is a testament to the talent of the actors, the director, and the writer. It is a story of two young men who are growing up in a world that is becoming increasingly overpopulated, and the one who is trying to figure out what to do with his life. He has a brother who has a job that he doesn't like, and he is a part time student who can't seem to find a place to fit in. He is very lonely and he is struggling to find a purpose in life. His mother is very understanding and supportive of him, but she is also very aware of his problems and tries to help him, but he is very stubborn. His friend is a young man who has just graduated from college and is working at a McDonald's. He is very intelligent, but he is also very rebellious. He is very much like his brother, and they are very similar in their feelings and attitudes. He is the only one who seems to be able to have a life of his own and he is the one who seems to be having the most fun. The two of them are the ones who are trying to figure out what to do with their lives. I highly recommend this film to anyone who is interested in seeing something very different and very interesting.

A great movie with an amazing ending. This movie has the best cast I have seen in a long time. This movie is a must see. This is a movie that I can watch over and over again and never get tired of. I think the ending is the best part of the movie. I was so happy to see a movie that actually made me cry. I was so happy to see a movie that made me feel happy. I loved this movie so much and I can't wait for the DVD to come out.

I saw this movie last night with my wife, and I was very impressed. I am not a big fan of Robert Redford, but I have to admit that I was impressed by this movie. The movie is about a man who has been out of work for many years and is just starting to rebuild his life. He decides to buy a motorcycle and starts riding around with it. He also starts a motorcycle club. He gets a job at a restaurant and then starts doing business in the restaurant. He also starts to get involved with the business of his club. The movie is about the man who is starting to rebuild his life. He is not a very good person, but he has a lot of passion. He does not care about his job and he does not care about his life. He just wants to be a good person. This is a very good movie. I give it a 9 out of 10.
