Former Richmonder Constance Wu (see video of her local work below) stars as a New Yorker who travels with her boyfriend to a wedding in Singapore. Turns out, he’s one of the titular clan and she’s immersed in the massive wealth of his friends and family. Speaking of family, the steely matriarch (Michelle Yeoh) is the biggest obstacle to their relationship.  There are many predictable elements of a classic romance with the monied variations to make it fun, even though some of the extravagance is a bit disappointing (as are some of the designer clothes). Still, the characters are engaging (esp. comic breakout Awkwafina), so it’s enjoyable to get caught up in their affairs.
