    Crazy Rich AsiansRelease date : August 17, 2018


    "Crazy Rich Asians" settles into the romantic-comedy category with its likable and relatable lead, understanding and too-perfect boyfriend, less understanding potential in-law, hapless and eccentric friend and a dash of a villainous ex-girlfriend. What the movie has that many others lack, however, is a dynamic that is more than a "will they" or "won't they" and an actual conversation between duty and love - though one settled a little too easily in the film. The lead still finds herself in a relationship with a man who forgets for a year to tell her his family is the richest in Singapore, she battles for some acknowledgment from his family, and there's plenty of hijinks from wayward rich cousins and her friend's family to keep comedy firmly in the film. But while the movie follows the usual rom-com situation, there are discussions of the difference between a Chinese-American and an established Chinese family, as well as the difference between American individualism and Asian family identity.
