With the new romantic dramedy Crazy Rich Asians, based on the bestselling novel by Kevin Kwan, Warner Bros. is making a rare venture into films with an all-Asian cast.

The film is being hailed as a long-overdue showcase of a long-neglected part of American society.

Crazy Rich Asians is exactly what it says on the box: a deeply romantic comedy about the crazy, rich, and Asian, and all the eye-popping displays of wealth and sugar-sweet declarations of love that that should entail.

But what makes Crazy Rich Asians special – what makes it more than an extremely convincing advertisement for luxury tourism in Singapore – is the smart and deeply felt culture-clash story at its core.
