Our featured new-in-cinema title this week is Crazy Rich Asians, a romantic comedy adapted from Kevin Kwan's popular American book of the same name. 

Rachel Chu is a professor who is invited by her new boyfriend Nick Chun on a trip to Singapore for his best friend's wedding. On the trip, Nick's secret is revealed - that he and his family are extremely wealthy - and Rachel is met with a new lifestyle and the task of impressing his over-protective mother. This humorous film explores topics such as family and class with an all-Asian cast.
