Have you seen Crazy Rich Asians yet? GGR is giving you the rundown on the movie with Sherin and GGR’s own crazy rich Asians: Kat and Soma. The girls get together to chat about the film’s extravagance, true to life characters, and the importance of representation.

From tough as nails matriarch Eleanor (Michelle Yeoh) to the realness of Henry (Nick Young) and Rachel’s (Constance Wu) relationship, there are so many reasons why this movie works and they’re gonna tell you why. Not to mention the representation—the cast of the film makes an impact but the storyline means even more. Sherin, Kat, and Soma discuss how Hollywood can do better and share everyone’s story. To close the show, they jump into the Asian writers, directors, and actors they want to see on screen.
