60 Second Verdict: Crazy Rich Asians
8 September 2018
Constance Wu plays Rachel Chu, a hard-working Asian girl who is invited to accompany boyfriend Nick back to Singapore for a friend’s wedding. On arrival she realises that Nick is not simply financially ‘comfortable’, but the heir to Singapore’s wealthiest family. Unfortunately, Nick’s mum (Michelle Yeoh) is not so impressed with what Nick’s brought home.

There’s lots of crazy going on, but probably not as much ‘crazy rich’ as you’d expect.
Spiritually it’s all about family and tradition moving over to accommodate the individual and new ways of thinking – like putting aside mum’s Chinese Christian values and letting your passions rule your life. Crazy? Well, that’s Crazy Rich Asians.
