Crazy Rich Asians Romantic Comedy
We were hosted at the exclusive Atlanta premiere of the Crazy Rich Asians movie at Atlantic Station. We loved it! It is a romantic comedy that everyone will enjoy. Crazy Rich Asians is based on the same-named bestselling novel by Kevin Kwan.
The movie will be in theatres on August 15th and you don’t want to miss it. I thought that the movie followed the book closely and I found it to be hilarious. As the title suggests – some of the characters aren’t just rich – they are “crazy” rich which means over the top, drop a cool $1.2 million on a pair of earrings rich.
I personally love all of the diversity in the film industry lately. With the movie Black Panther and now Crazy Rich Asians – I am hoping to see the trend to continue. It means so much for everyone to be represented on the big screen. It is empowering and emotionally satisfying to see someone like yourself and/or stories about your community represented in the film and entertainment industry.

“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.
