Re­lease date: Thurs­day, Au­gust 30 Stars: Con­stance Wu, Michelle Yeoh, Henry Gold­ing, Awk­wa­fina Genre: Com­edy Even at the first spe­cial screen­ing in April, this movie has been met with over­whelm­ingly pos­i­tive feed­back.

The story, based on Kevin Kwan’s book of the same name, is a ro­man­tic com­edy that fol­lows New Yorker Rachel Chu to Sin­ga­pore to meet her boyfriend’s fam­ily at his best friend’s wed­ding.

Sounds like a nice trip, ex­cept it re­veals that boyfriend Nick had con­ve­niently for­got­ten to share some de­tails with her.

Namely, that he comes from a very wealthy fam­ily with a dark past, and is pos­si­bly the most el­i­gi­ble bach­e­lor in Asia.

As if this wasn’t enough, his mother isn’t too keen on Rachel and ev­ery sin­gle woman around wants to get their hands on Nick!
