Celebrity writer alledged autobiography
8 October 2018 | by jrneptuneSee all my reviews

Watched it on Showtime and although I have not read the book it is based on, Taipei, from the description of the book it does sound like much was followed including the names of the main characters.

Guessing the success of the movie Crazy Rich Asians might have been a factor in the film airing before the 2019 date.

The film is an unapologetic glimpse of a celebrity Asian writer and his circle of wealthy friends but focuses on the relationship that develops.

It is sot for everyone and don't expect any Hollywood ending here. I do feel it was worth the watch but passing up on it would be no big deal.
