Crazy Rich Asians

Te Awamutu Courier - - News -

This is a heart­warm­ing story that ex­plores the com­mon shared and hi­lar­i­ous ex­pe­ri­ences of fam­ily feel­ings and lively mod­ern­day love.

The story fol­lows New Yorker Rachel Chu as she ac­com­pa­nies her long-time boyfriend, Nick Young, to his best friend's wed­ding in Sin­ga­pore.

Ex­cited about vis­it­ing Asia for the first time and ner­vous about meet­ing Nick's fam­ily, Rachel is un­pre­pared to learn that Nick has ne­glected to men­tion a few key de­tails about his life. It turns out that he is not only the son of one of the coun­try's most notable and wealth­i­est fam­i­lies, but also one of its most soughtafter bach­e­lors.

Be­ing on Nick's arm puts a tar­get on Rachel's back, with jeal­ous so­cialites and worse, Nick's own dis­ap­prov­ing mother tak­ing aim. It soon be­comes clear that while money can't buy love, it can def­i­nitely com­pli­cate things.

You can't help fall­ing in love with this movie.

An ef­fer­ves­cent breath of fresh cin­e­matic air, this ridicu­lously en­ter­tain­ing film suc­ceeds as an in­stant cul­tural touch­stone and a reaf­fir­ma­tion of the joy of ro­man­tic come­dies. Do­minic Corry
