As the first predominately Asian film Hollywood has produced since The Joy Luck Club twenty-five years ago, Crazy Rich Asians has many eyes on it for many reasons, and it has the unenviable task of being everything to everybody. Adapted by Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim from Kevin Kwan’s best-selling novel and directed by John M. Full Story
