Unleashes debate on ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ film representation

Since Ricky Yean first heard about “Crazy Rich Asians,” he has been excited to see the movie. And not because he likes romantic comedies (although, for the record, he does like them). For the Taiwanese-American, who came to the United States at age 11, it’s something he’s never seen: A movie from a large Hollywood studio with a cast of Asian-American and Asian actors. So when it opens on Wednesday, “I’ll definitely go and line up and make sure to see her and bring all my friends,” said the San Francisco resident.
