Crazy Rich Asians revolves around Rachel (Constance Wu), a NYU Professor, who goes with her boyfriend Nick (Henry Golding), to Singapore for his best friend’s wedding. But only on the way to Singapore does Rachel find out that Nick’s family is traditional and filthy rich. So, Rachel must learn how to navigate a way into Nick’s family and win his mother’s approval.
It would be remiss not to mention that this movie has an all Asian cast. And it’s a really great thing to see. In the film, we get to see more Asian culture – food, music, style, the Singapore skyline – things not typically presented in a Hollywood film. And like Black Panther earlier this year, this film is making buttloads of money at the box office, so yes more representation please, it’s time to get more diverse stories out there. Even though Coco was a huge success last year, let’s get an all Hispanic cast next in a live action film.
