I must say that indeed I am surprised of the recent success of ‘Crazy Rich Asians’. Normally, a movie with a majority Asian cast doesn’t do well. Or, some might say that there hasn’t been that many to begin with. The last movie I can recall with a majority Asian cast was ‘Joy Luck Club’ from so long ago. I was just a little boy back then. Yup, that long ago.
Based on a bestselling novel by Kevin Kwan, ‘Crazy Rich Asians’, even so exceeded my expectations. Perhaps, Hollywood truly is really to embrace minority films. But, only the future can tell.
I guess you really can’t predict success in the film industry.
Many loved the movie so I must acknowledge the great job the producers have done to make this film a success.
