Crazy Rich Asians Movie

We had the pleasure of being invited to the exclusive Atlanta premiere of the Crazy Rich Asians movie, which was held at Atlantic Station. It was an amazing experience, and we thoroughly enjoyed the romantic comedy. The movie is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Kevin Kwan released in theatres on August 15, 2018.

The movie closely follows the plot of the book and is filled with hilarious moments. As the title suggests, some of the characters are not just rich, but “crazy” rich, which means they are extremely wealthy and extravagant. For instance, they can drop a cool $1.2 million on a pair of earrings.

I am excited to see the recent trend of diverse representation in the film industry. With movies like Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians, I hope this trend continues. It is empowering and emotionally satisfying to see oneself or one's community represented in the film and entertainment industry. It means a lot for everyone to have equal representation on the big screen.

“Crazy Rich Asians” follows New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry 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.

Author of Crazy Rich Asians – Kevin Kwan

Author of Crazy Rich Asians, Kevin Kwan, was born in Singapore, into an established Chinese family.  Kevin's family moved to America at the age of 11.  His books include Crazy Rich Asians, China Rich Girlfriend, and Rich People problems.  He was named as one of “Five Writers to Watch” on The Hollywood Reporter's list of Hollywood's Most Powerful Authors in 2014.  In 2018, Kwan was one of Time magazine's list of 100 Most Influential People and was inducted into The Asian Hall of Fame.
