Crazy Rich Asians: the first all-Asian Hollywood film in 25 years.
Based on Kevin Kwan’s 2013 best-selling novel, the
movie Crazy Rich Asians _____ its inspiration from the
writer’s elite upbringing in Singapore: his grandfather
helped invent Chinese cure-all Tiger Balm, and as a kid
 Kevin bred exotic fish that now sell for up to $300,000
each. It is a story about a romantic relationship between
two New York University professors. After dating for
two years, Nick Young (Henry Golding) _____ Rachel
Chu (Constance Wu) to his native Singapore to meet
 his family. Once there, Rachel _____ that Nick is
the highly sought-after heir to an enormous fortune,
and any prospect of a future with Rachel in it sparks
jealousy, sabotage and bullying. The “crazy” wealth
of Nick’s family is on an extreme scale: cruise ships
 with multiple pools, climate-controlled closets, and
more private planes than cars. But the film’s exotic
flowers and million-dollar gems have been eclipsed by
a far weightier conversation. There is a lack of major
Hollywood roles available to Asian-American actors.
 They are given less than 5% of speaking parts: either
because the roles haven’t been written, or they are
Director Jon M Chu’s film has already become a
beacon for representation by also exploring the
 dynamic that Asian-Americans never feel wholly Asian
or American. His audition announcement calling for
aspiring actors read: “especially for Asian characters
of different shapes, sizes and talents.” “We just really
wanted to open up the process because we know
 how hard it is to get in the door”, he said. Asian
actors have struggled to gain visibility in the United
States, an issue cemented in 1930 when Hollywood
enforced the Hays Code, a list of restrictions to keep
films “wholesome” and “moral”. Hollywood may have
 stopped enforcing the Hays Code 50 years ago, but
its traditional whitewashing refuses to die. Indeed, one
of the first producers interested in Crazy Rich Asians
asked whether some roles, including Constance Wu’s
Rachel Chu, could be rewritten as Caucasian.
 There is a moral imperative among Asian-Americans
to see Crazy Rich Asians. “It’s not a movie, it’s a
movement,” according to Chu. It feels as if viewers
must demonstrate the demand for their stories on
screen – otherwise, another movie boasting an
 all-Asian cast might not happen in Hollywood for
yet another 25 years. However, Chu’s film feels
revolutionary in the way it turns a culture clash into a
date-night movie that actually features an Asian couple.
“I know this film won’t represent every Asian American,”
 Constance Wu tweeted on 31 July. “So for those who
don’t feel seen, I hope there is a story you find soon
that does represent you. I am rooting for you. We’re
not all the same, but we all have a story.”

Which question below is answered in text?
Questão 38 1315016AFA 2019
Instruction: Answer the question according to the text.
WHY DO SUPERVILLAINS FASCINATE US? A PSYCHOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE
Why are we fascinated by supervillains? Posing
the question is much like asking why evil itself intrigues
us, but there's much more to our continued interest in
supervillains than meets the eye.
 Not only do Lex Luthor, Dracula and the Red Skull
run unconstrained by conventional morality, they exist
outside the limits of reality itself. Their evil, even at its
most realistic, retains a touch of the unreal.
But is our fascination with fantastic fiends1
 healthy? From a psychological perspective, views vary
on what drives our enduring interest in superhuman bad
Shadow confrontation: Psychiatrist Carl Jung
believed we need to confront and understand our own
 hidden nature to grow as human beings. Healthy
confrontation with our shadow selves can unearth new
strengths (e.g., Bruce Wayne creating his Dark Knight
persona to fight crime), whereas unhealthy attempts at
confrontation may involve dwelling on or unleashing the
 worst parts of ourselves.
Wish fulfillment: Sigmund Freud viewed human
nature as inherently antisocial, biologically driven by the
undisciplined id's pleasure principle to get what we
want when we want it – born to be bad but held back by
 society. Even if the psyche fully develops its ego
(source of self-control) and superego (conscience),
Freudians say the id still dwells2
underneath, and it
wishes for many selfish things – so it would love to be
 Hierarchy of needs: Humanistic psychologist
Abraham Maslow held that people who haven't met
their most basic needs will have difficulty maturing. If
starved for food, you're unlikely to feel secure. If
starved for love and companionship, you'll have trouble
 building self-esteem. People who dwell on their deficits
may envy and resent others who have more than they
do. Some people who are unable to overcome social
shortcomings fantasize about obtaining any means,
good or bad, to satisfy every need and greed.
 Conditioning: Ivan Pavlov would say we can learn
to associate supervillains with other things we value –
like entertainment, strength, freedom or the heroes
themselves. Behaviorist B.F. Skinner would likely argue
that we can find it reinforcing to watch or read about
 supervillains, but without knowing what's reinforcing
about them, that's a bit like saying it's rewarding
because it's rewarding.
Our Motivations for Seeking Out Supervillains
Throughout history, humans have been captivated
 by stories of heroes facing off against superhuman
foes3. But what specific rewards, needs, wishes and
dark dreams do supervillains satisfy?
Freedom: Superpowered characters enjoy
freedoms the rest of us don't. Nobody can arrest
 Superman unless he lets them (at least not without
kryptonite handcuffs). As much time as supervillains
spend locked up, they seem to escape as often as they
please, to run unconstrained by rules and regulations.
Cosplayers who dress like Wonder Woman and
 Captain America can't do any crazy thing that crosses
their minds without seeming to mock and insult our
heroes, whereas those dressed as villains get to go
wild. Supervillainy feels liberating.
Power: Maybe you envy the power these evil
 characters wield4 .While that's also a reason to adore
superheroes, good guys don't ache to dominate.
Stories like Watchmen and Kingdom Come show how
heroes become menaces5 when they try to take over.
So when dreaming of superpowers, maybe you relate
 to characters who dream of power as well, from the
Scarecrow (who controls individuals' fears) to Doctor
Doom (who's perpetually out to dominate the world).
Better villain than victim: Physiologically, anger
activates us and feels better than anxiety or fear. One
 who feels victimized and cannot figure out constructive
ways to stand up, be strong or become heroic might
twist the need for self-assertion into destruction.
Alternately, a healthy person simply might focus on how
all characters assert themselves in any given story.
 Better villain equals better hero: A hero only
appears as heroic as the challenge he or she must
overcome. Great heroes require great villains. Without
supercriminals, the world's finest heroes seem like
overpowered brutes nabbing thugs6unworthy of them.
 Through myths, legends and lore across time, we have
needed heroes who rise to the occasion, overcome
great odds7 and take down giants.
Facing our fears: Instead of dreading the
darkness, you might reduce that dread by shining a
 light and seeing what's out there. Fiction can help us
feel empowered and enlightened without literally
traipsing into mob hangouts8and poorly lit alleyways9.
Exploring the unknown: Our need to challenge
the unknown has driven the human race to cover the
 globe. This powerful curiosity makes us wonder about
everything that baffles10 us, including the world's worst
fiends. Knowledge is power, or at least feels like it.
When gritty details repulse us, exploring evil through the
filter of fiction can help us contemplate humanity's
 worst without turning away or dwelling almost
voyeuristically on real human tragedy. Even when the
fiction is about improbable people doing impossible
things, the story's fantastic nature reassures us that this
cannot happen – and therefore we don't have to turn
Supervillains' Ultimate Purpose
In the end, our interest in supervillains can be
healthy or unhealthy. Even the more maladaptive
reasons for such fascination tend to arise from
 motivations that were originally healthy and natural –
frustrated drives that went the wrong way.
Remember, though, that superheroic fiction
ultimately begins and ends with the heroes. Comic book
writers and artists create supervillains, who move in and
 out as guest stars and supporting cast, first and
foremost to reveal how heroic the comics' stars can be.
