Crazy Rich Asians, a book-inspired movie, will be released in theatres tomorrow.
Not only is it a great push for Asian representation in the North American Movie Industry, but it also shows an authentic perspective of what it means to be Asian-American.
Whenever you can see and relate with something that reflects a part of yourself, you are immediately biased towards it.
And although I know I am extremely biased towards “Crazy Rich Asians” I still hope that many people who can’t directly relate with the story still make the effort to enjoy it and understand the culture.
After all, isn’t that how we connect with different people in the first place?
