Crazy Rich Asians is based on a book of the same name by Kevin Kwan. It features an all-Asian cast from an American-made film. Crazy Rich Asians is set to release in theaters August 17, 2018.
Crazy Rich Asians Movie Synopsis
“Crazy Rich Asians” follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but 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 scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Yeoh) taking aim.
And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things.
