Movie tip: "Crazy Rich Asians"
Crazy Rich Asians
In a year where “Black Panther” made Hollywood realize that, yes, a movie with an all-black cast can be a blockbuster, we now have a film that should teach Tinseltown the same thing about an all-Asian cast. (Now, if only the powers-that-be would remember these lessons …) “Crazy Rich Asians” is a thoroughly entertaining romantic comedy, light and brisk. Director Jon. M. Chu takes audiences on a deep dive into the fantastically opulent world of Singapore’s wealthy. The biggest revelation of the whole production is Henry Golding. He has his first acting role as the guy who hasn’t told his girlfriend that his family in Singapore is ridiculously rich. Golding has a natural ease onscreen and a powerful charisma; simply put, he’s a star.
