Crazy Rich Asians – Mahjong Scene [Official HD]

The Mahjong scene from Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

This scene is the climax of the movie, where Rachel (Constance Wu) squares off against Eleanor (Michelle Yeoh) over Nick (Henry Golding). The rules of Mahjong are similar to Poker and “Go Fish” where a player tries to make a winning hand from drawing a tile or consuming someone else’s discard tile. The loser (the one who pays money) is the person who discards the winning tile to the winner.

In this scene, Eleanor explains that she does not approve of Rachel because as an American, Rachel can only think about herself and not about family. Rachel then reveals that she turned down Nick’s proposal and offer to walk away from his family, to which Eleanor responds, “Only a fool folds a winning hand.” But Rachel responds that she did this because it would tear him away from his mother and ultimately make him sad. As she does this, she draws the winning tile for her hand, but also knows that it is the tile Eleanor needs to win. She discards her tile to which Eleanor takes to win. Then Rachel reveals her tiles to show that she did in fact, fold the winning hand, showing Eleanor that when she looks back years from now, she’ll know that she only has the winning hand (Nick) because Rachel made the sacrifice to give him up.
