Finding Mr. Right

Opens Tuesday, Nov 8, 2016 Synopsis: A pregnant Beijing mistress travels to Seattle to give birth to her child, and learns the meaning of humility when she befriends a humble maternity-ward driver while awaiting the arrival of her negligent sugar daddy. From the moment she arrives in Seattle, Wen Jiajia (Tang Wei) is positively insufferable. Berating everyone at the nursing ward as she casually flaunts her wealth, Wen quickly alienates herself from the staff and patients alike. The only one who can tolerate her is reserved driver Frank (Wu Xiu-Bo), and that's only because he's too polite to put her in her place. Meanwhile, an unexpected development prompts gold-digging Wen to reflect on her attitude and reassess her priorities. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Tang Wei, Xiubo Wu, Elaine Jin Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
