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
In the arrival scene, Rachel commented on the Butterfly Gardens, which can be found in Changi Airport Terminal 3, the only terminal with that feature. See more »
When Nick asks Rachel to go to Singapore, he says "Singapore for Spring break". This would place the timing of the film between March and April of the calendar year. However, the Tan Hua (Queen of the Night Flower), which blooms on the second night after they arrive, only blooms between July and October. See more »
I'm confused by the criticism of this movie by other users - this wasn't made for people who want to be rich & glamorous, it literally showed how shallow & void the overly-rich & indulgent were. You were supposed to feel disgusted by them at many points in the film. But it was less about the flashy cars & parties, & more about the relationship between a girl & her boyfriend's family, as well as the identity crises that arise for an immigrant in America.
