This is one of the funniest, feel-good movies I have seen in a long time (apart from Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again…).
It tells the story of Rachel Chu (played by Constance Wu), a Chinese-American economics professor from New York who travels with her boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding) to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore only to find out that he is the heir to one of the richest families in Asia. Rachel finds herself struggling to fit her American ideals together with ancient Chinese traditions and way of life.
Its a great film with an equally great cast, including Michelle Yeoh from Star Trek: Discovery as Eleanor Young, Nick’s mother. Awkwafina plays a hysterical Peik Lin, Rachel’s college buddy and Gemma Chan plays Nick’s sister Astrid.
An excellent soundtrack accompanies nearly every scene.
It’s well worth a watch, probably more than once. Take tissues as you’ll laugh and cry….sometimes at once!
