Views from the Edge

A special preview of the upcoming movie, Crazy Rich Asians, was held in L.A. In the audience were a whole bunch of AAPI influencers.

The initial response: overwhelming, tears, joy, pride, emotional.

My two favorite tweets: From director John M. Chu, “It’s not a movie, it’s a movement.”

And we get this from from Andre J. Daughtry. He said what, I’ve been thinking : Crazy Rich Asians is to AAPI as Black Panther is for African Americans. That’s putting a lot of pressure on the film adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s best-selling novel.

Take a look at the sampling of the responses below for yourself.
