It would be insane to miss ‘Crazy Rich Asians’
It was the film’s opening weekend. The auditorium was sold out. The movie playing was the adaptation of a best-selling novel. All of the principal cast was Asian. I remember it well, even though the 25th anniversary of that weekend arrives in September of this year. That film was The Joy Luck Club.
It has taken that long for Hollywood to make another major motion picture with an all-Asian cast. Crazy Rich Asians proves that there was no good reason to wait that long to make such a film.
