‘Crazy Rich Asians’ is a bona fide Hollywood smash. The movie tells the story of Rachel Chu, a native New Yorker who flies to Singapore to meet her boyfriend’s family. The film is being lauded by some as monumental moment for representation because it tackles the complexities of what it means to be Asian-American. Others, though, say it shines a spotlight on Asian-American representation while ignoring other Asian groups.
