The Farewell

This is a subtle movie about the differences that separate us.  In this film a girl in college struggles to connect with her family.  Her family in turn struggles to reconcile the differences in both generations and new country vs.  old country.  When a presumed tragedy strikes at the beginning of the film the main characters are sent into a tizzy about how to handle it.  That is, all but one.  I think this movie was an excellent subtle commentary on how to live life.
