Based on the best-selling book of the same name. Nick Young is a history professor at NYU, and he’s falling in love with fellow professor Rachel Chu. When he travels back to Singapore to attend his best friend’s wedding, he takes Rachel with him. And, before long, his secret is out. Nick is from a family that is worth $13-billion. He’s perhaps the most eligible bachelor in Asia, and every single woman in his ultra-rarefied social class is incredibly jealous of Rachel and wants to bring her down. It’s up to Rachel to prove to Nick’s insanely privileged family that she’s worthy of being his wife.
The only thing crazier than love is family.
Native New Yorker Rachel Chu accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young, 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 taking aim.
It soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate love.
Based on Crazy Rich Asians (the novel) by Kevin Kwan.
