Screen Times: "Crazy Rich Asians"

  • Published on:  8/15/2018
  • Logan Hill, veteran New York Times contributor, hosts an advance screening of the eagerly awaited contemporary romantic comedy “Crazy Rich Asians,” based on the best-selling novel by Kevin Kwan. Constance Wu stars as a Chinese-American economics professor who accompanies her boyfriend (Henry Golding) to his native Singapore, where she learns that his family is not just rich, they’re crazy rich, and his mother (Michelle Yeoh) isn’t quite welcoming her with open arms. Following the screening, Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Awkwafina, Michelle Yeoh and author Kevin Kwan join Hill for an entertaining conversation about this Hollywood movie that puts an Asian storyline front and center, and about how audiences around the world can relate.
