Crazy Rich Asians at Waterworks Cinema, July 29 and 30.

The movie Crazy Rich Asians is playing at the Waterworks Cinema on July 29 and 30. A summary of the film, from the distributor:
"Crazy Rich Asians” follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things.
Tickets for the two 7:40 pm shows are available online. The theater is located at the Waterworks Shopping Mall across the river from Higland Park (map).
