book by Kevin Kwan. The movie is already making major waves because it's the first all-Asian cast in more than two decades, and long overdue. The movie stars Henry Golding in his first movie role as Nick Young and Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat) as Rachel Chu. The story revolves around Nick wanting to take his girlfriend to meet his family in Singapore, but he never tells her that he's insanely rich and that everyone in Singapore will be gunning to break them up upon their arrival. The book was hailed as a modern-day Jane Austen spin on upperclass life and spawned two sequels, CHINA RICH GIRLFRIEND and RICH PEOPLE PROBLEMS.
