Stephanie is a single mother with a parenting vlog who befriends Emily, a secretive upper-class woman who has a child at the same elementary school. When Emily goes missing, Stephanie takes it upon herself to investigate.
The story follows Rachel Chu (Wu), an American-born Chinese economics professor, who travels to her boyfriend Nick's (Golding) hometown of Singapore for his best friend's wedding. Before long, his secret is out: Nick is from a family that is impossibly wealthy, he's perhaps the most eligible bachelor in Asia, and every single woman in his ultra-rarefied social class is incredibly jealous of Rachel and wants to bring her down.Written by
Kevin Kwan originally wrote the novel as a short story adaptation of a poem he wrote for a creative writing course titled "Singapore Bible Study" in a way of preserving memories of life in Singapore during the 18-month period (October 2008 to April 2010) he was caring for his dying father. After the completing the chapter, he was inspired into turning it into a novel. The short story was eventually featured as chapter two of the book. See more »
When Peik Lin Goh is driving Rachel Chu to the party at the Young's residence they are using satNav with audio instructions that advise them to "make a U-turn" and both characters wonder if they have gone to the wrong place. However they carry along the same route and make it to the correct location. Why would the satNav direct them to turn around if they were in fact going the right way? This is not a mistake. The SatNav order to turn around may have been deliberate; a way to indicate that the owners of the house were so 'crazy rich' that they could fix the SatNav in the area to deter uninvited guests.

This Film Last Night And See In The News This Morning That...
... the director is wanted by law enforcement for being missing in action for his military duty.
That makes sense.
This film was an embarrassment from start to finish. All it shows is that the small group of Asians it depicts are cloned westerners who love, eat, devour, like, swallow shallow material 'things' and have zero care for the planet or their own image. 'Asians' as we all know if we are honest with each other are just mini westerners who act like westerners, want to be westerners and demand to have the same polluting cars, shiny jewels and 'romantic' encounters as the westerners.
I have not read the book, but this film fully makes sense. There are a million 'Asians' out there who run around showing off their wardrobe and mansion and tanks (I mean cars) and this film glorifies all of them and will therefore get them to pay for tickets.
That shows as Asians we have lost.
