I had the chance to attend a panel discussion with the cast and crew of Crazy Rich Asians, which has been seen as a win for representation in the US but has also been quite controversial locally. Director Jon M Chu was there and for what it’s worth, I think he did a fantastic job with the movie. To be clear, this is not a ‘Singaporean’ production. It is an American movie made largely for Americans. But it was still inspiring to see the actors I grew up with on the silver screen, not to mention the Singaporean accent and even smatterings of Singlish.
