Adele Lim who co-wrote the movie script for Crazy Rich Asians makes her directorial debut with Liongate’s Joy Ride.
The film starring Ashley Park of Emily in Paris, the Oscar-nominated Stephanie Hsu of Everything Everywhere All At Once , comedienne Sherry Cola of Good Trouble and Sabrina Wu of Doogie Kameāloha, M.D. is a raunch road trip film.
Park goes on a search for her birth parents in China with the help of her childhood bestie played by Cola.
The wild trailer gives you a pretty good idea of the tone of this film.
Ronny Chieng and Chris Pang of Crazy Rich Asians also make appearances.
Joy Ride debuts tonight March 17 at SXSW and will be released nationwide on July 7.
Teresia Hsiao and Cherry Chavapravatdumrang wrote the script.
