'Crazy Rich Asians' (2018) Review
It's August release time and if you know films, it's not a major release month. Summer blockbusters are over and school is back in session. So you would expect the new love story Crazy Rich Asians to be a trait film in some way. Really, what's to gain from this film if you just read the script because it's such a basic plot. Crazy Rich Asians comes together though in such a different way. Something much more that puts a lot of things into perspective, including a film that offers more than just a love story.
