Recommended by your fellow moms! First all-Asian Hollywood movie since the Joy Luck Club 25 years ago, "Crazy Rich Asians" follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Wu from Fresh Off the Boat) 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 (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can't buy love, it can definitely complicate things.
