Crazy Rich Asians and Asian American Stereotypes

Crazy Rich Asians and Asian American Stereotypes

Nicole and Garrett discuss Crazy Rich Asians, the movie's charm as a rom-com that still has depth, the dismantling of Asian American stereotypes, and old money vs. the nouvea riche. For more from Garrett, read his review on Cinema Babel. For differing perspectives, on watching Singapore on film read Stephanie Foo's Vox article along with Kirsten Han's article in The Entertainer. 

Garrett recommends Searching and Nicole recommends singer/songwriter Rachael Yamagata.
