Adele Lim’s ‘Joy Ride’ coming to cinemas in June

‘Joy Ride’, the directorial debut from Adele Lim (writer of ‘Crazy Rich Asians’), will be released in cinemas on 23rd June 2023 via Lionsgate.

Written by Cherry Chevapravatdumrong (‘Family Guy’) and Teresa Hsiao (‘Awkwafina is Nora from Queens’), the film is produced by Seth Rogan, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Josh Fagen, Adele Lim, Cherry Chevapravatdumrong and Teresa Hsiao.

The cast includes Stephanie Hsu (‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’), Ashley Park (‘Emily in Paris’) and Sherry Cola (‘Good Trouble’).

The hilarious and unapologetically explicit story of identity and self-discovery centres on four unlikely friends who embark on a once-in-a-lifetime international adventure. When Audrey’s (Ashley Park) business trip to Asia goes sideways, she enlists the aid of Lolo (Sherry Cola), her irreverent, childhood best friend who also happens to be a hot mess; Kat (Stephanie Hsu), her college friend turned Chinese soap star; and Deadeye (Sabrina Wu), Lolo’s eccentric cousin.

Their no-holds-barred, epic experience becomes a journey of bonding, friendship, belonging, and wild debauchery that reveals the universal truth of what it means to know and love who you are.

‘Joy Ride’ also stars Ronny Chieng (‘Crazy Rich Asians’), Desmond Chiam (‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’), Alexander Hodge (‘Insecure’), and Chris Pang (‘Crazy Rich Asians’).
