This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Brad from The Cinema Guys podcast joins us to talk about The Farewell and our Top 3 goodbye scenes in film! We also feature JD’s interview with Lulu Wang, the director of the The Farewell, who talks about what the film means to her.
Big thanks to Brad for joining us this week. We are big fans of his podcast and it was a pleasure to get him on the show. Our thanks as well to Lulu Wang. She was a great interview and her film is something really special. Please seek it out. We mentioned this in the review, but we should have waited a week to do our Top 5 Movies of 2019 so far as The Farewell would have been mentioned in one way or another. Still, we were happy to finally talk about this film!
That said, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

– Notes / Lulu Wang Interview (44:25)
As discussed in the review, Lulu Wang’s direction in The Farewell is one of the best of the year. Everything from the cinematography, editing, sound design, score, and the performances, it’s all masterful. JD was able to sit down with her to briefly discuss her approach and why this movie means so much to her.
– Top 3 Goodbye Scenes (59:31)
This is one of the more vast topics we’ve done on the show this year. There are countless goodbye scenes in film. Some are perhaps more iconic than others, but no matter which direction you point, there were endless possibilities for our lists. We did our best to narrow down the scenes that spoke to us the most, so maybe this is a more subjective list than usual, but we also love the quality of these moments as well. That said, what would be your Top 3?
