Story Structure Analysis of Crazy Rich Asians

Jan 14th, 2019

Last week, I moderated the first Dramatica Users Group of the year Crazy Rich Asians.

If you know anything about this film, you know that it was a surprise success--due in large part to its solid and meaningful story.

What the heck does that even mean? A "solid and meaningful" story?

It means there's something more there than characters and things happening to those characters and scenes about how those characters overcome those things happening to them--

--it means the Author is trying to argue something important. A point-of-view on how best to resolve the conflict in our own lives.

The class ran TWO HOURS. It was, by far, the largest turnout we've had in a while, which means the quality and diversity of the conversation was off the charts.

And I had a blast teaching it.

Whether you're a seasoned veteran, or new to all of this story theory, this class will be well worth your time. 🚀
