Many fans of Chinese martial arts films have become sentimental after learning that Donnie Yen-one of the best action stars of his era-will no longer do action roles.

"As an actor and a filmmaker, I have made so many movies-some that people love watching and some that people don't. I think that's enough for me," says Yen.

Asian-American filmmaker Lulu Wang did exactly that. The Farewell was the big hit of Sundance this year, praised for its authentic and heartfelt story about Billi, played by Awkwafina, a Beijing-born New Yorker who is roped into her family’s lie to keep her grandmother’s cancer diagnosis a secret from the matriarch. For Billi, not telling her grandmother, Nai Nai, that she only has months to live is wrong, but her family insists it’s the right thing to do, or not do.
