Crazy Rich Asians

Cert 12A, 121 min­utes, in cin­e­mas 14 Septem­ber

Heat (UK) - - The Un missables - Charles Gant

Star­ring: Con­stance Wu, Henry Gold­ing, Michelle Yeoh Di­rec­tor: Jon M Chu

THE PLOT When New Yorker Rachel (Wu) ac­com­pa­nies her boyfriend Nick (Gold­ing) back home to Sin­ga­pore for a wed­ding, she has no idea what she’s in for. Turns out that his vastly wealthy fam­ily are like roy­alty, so win­ning the ap­proval of his stern mother (Yeoh) while dodg­ing jeal­ous ri­vals won’t be easy.

WHAT’S RIGHT WITH IT? The clas­sic rom­com – how we’ve missed you! Bonuses: Awk­wa­fina brings the funny as Rachel’s agree­ably bonkers BFF, while Sin­ga­pore pro­vides much lo­ca­tion porn. WHAT’S WRONG WITH IT? Some may strug­gle with the film’s giddy dis­play of ex­treme wealth.

VER­DICT Of­fer­ing a fresh, fun twist on a too-long-dor­mant genre, the year’s big hit at US cin­e­mas looks set to con­quer the world. ★★★★
