When Rachel Chu goes with her boyfriend Nick to a wedding in Singapore, she is in for a myriad of surprises. It turns out that Nick's family is rich, Like...super rich. Everyone in Singapore is gossiping and wanting to know everything about the girl that Nick is dating.
Crazy Rich Asians is based on the 2013 novel by Kevin Kwan. This movie is so wonderful. I loved the acting, the story, the costumes, and the scenery. This is a perfect rom-com and one that I will watch over and over again on DVD.
But in addition to how great it is, it's also a record-breaking movie: the first movie in 25 years starring a majority Asian cast AND it's the highest grossing studio movie rom-com since 2009. I hope that producers and executives take note that people are hugely interested in diverse casts and stories and give us the two sequels to the book.
