Netflix has released another original movie, ‘Always Be My Maybe’, starring Randall Pak and Ali Wong, and the fans are loving it!
The movie is about a famous chef Sasha, who moves back to her old town to open up a restaurant where she is reunited with her childhood friend, Marcus. They rekindle their romance when Sasha’s engagement breaks; but will the two adults belonging to two different socioeconomic classes put aside their differences to make it work?
Nahnatchka Khan’s romantic comedy is a must watch for anyone who’s in the mood for a lighthearted, tear jerking, movie. It has an almost all Asian star cast, with a cameo from Keanu Reeves. Fans were delighted to find out that he had a role in the movie. The Twitterverse is gushing over him playing himself. Reeves even helped improve the script by suggesting a few jokes and lines.
Pak finally got his big break as a lead, and Wong has already been making a name for herself in the industry. It is a predictable, cliche love story, but Khan’s directorial style is what really pulled the movie together.
Netflix always creates movies for a certain demographic, and it has always delivered. This time was no different. The people who watched the movie only have positive reviews about it. Asian-Americans everywhere are happy that they were portrayed exactly as they are in real life and not in some stereotypical manner.
delighted that #AlwaysBeMyMaybe made the effort to cast so many Asian extras to better reflect the demographics of San Francisco. it might seem like a silly detail to point out, but it stood out to me bc i’ve rarely ever seen such crowds in contemporary U.S. movies. pic.twitter.com/tUl5a5ZEu8
