Crazy Rich Asians is a heart-touching movie that will make you laugh, gasp, and cry.

The movie Crazy Rich Asians is based on the novel by Kevin Kwan and is the first to have a fully Asian cast in America in 25 years.With it’s rating of PG-13, Crazy Rich Asias is meant for teens and adult viewers. The movie follows an independent woman named Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) and her boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), on their way to Singapore for Nick’s best friend’s wedding. Upon their arrival, Rachel realizes her boyfriend is not, in fact, an ordinary New Yorker, but is actually the son of one of Singapore’s most wealthy families. He is also the one of the country’s most desirable bachelors.

Navigating a social class Rachel had never encountered as well as experiencing everything from disapproving mothers to two-faced backstabbers, Rachel finds herself in a whirlwind of a vacation she never dreamed of. The movie’s themes of family and the difference between appearance and character, really make you wonder whether you or any one you know has ever experienced this before.

This movie makes you want to sob pathetically and yell Awwwwwww repeatedly at the screen. Loving the movie myself, I would recommend it to anyone and everyone who loves rom-coms. And who knows, maybe after watching the movie you might even want to read the book. I suggest leaving wherever you are right now to hit the movies before it leaves theaters.
