When Pete and Ellie decide to start a family, they stumble into the world of foster care adoption.

Now, Pete and Ellie must try to learn the ropes of instant parenthood in the hope of becoming a family.

“This is a pure feel-gooder that not only has its heart in the right place, but its brains as well. And it's funny.” US WEEKLY

“It's a surprisingly winning movie, packed with just the right combination of laughs and sniffles. Damn you, Wahlberg! ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

Never as hackneyed as it is heartfelt, "Instant Family" takes the stuff of real life and turns it into a touching reminder of what love can do for the people who need it.” INDIEWIRE

STARRING: Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh, Gemma Chan, Ken Jeong, Awkwafina

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.

“It’s a reinvented romantic comedy, sassy and fun, that doesn’t necessarily rely on obvious tropes and is worth the wait.” TIME OUT

“The result is hugely enjoyable, and hooray for Hollywood for making it happen.” WALL STREET JOURNAL

“It's simply great fun, a winsome romantic comedy and an occasionally over-the-top luxury fantasy that never flags.” TIME MAGAZINE

COMEDY | HISTORY | DRAMA

DIRECTOR: Yorgos Lanthimos

STARRING: Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Olivia Colman

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.

“It's a period piece with a wink. It's also funny as hell and a true big-screen treat.” CHICAGO SUN TIMES

“A wicked delight.” HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“It's a perfectly cut diamond of a movie - a finely executed, coldly entertaining entry in the genre of savage misanthropic baroque costume drama.” VARIETY
