Crazy Rich Asians

This romantic comedy directed by Jon M Chu has a universal appeal as it handles the themes of identity, class and family. An adaptation of a best-seller, it is as much about clash of cultures as it is about clash of classes. Mocking the extravagantly rich things people tend to do and the dilemma that comes with it, the movie is a must-watch.
