Posterized: Michelle Yeoh

by Nathaniel R

It's a new season of our seriesPosterizedin which we look back at the entire careers of various actors and directors.Last weekSpike Lee joints.Today,Malaysia's finest:Michelle Yeoh.The fifty-six year old Asian superstar is currently grande dame'ing it through the romantic comedyCrazy Rich Asians,giving the movie nearly all of its dramatic bite through her excellent nuanced underplaying of the intimidating and at times outright cruel potential mother-in-law.

Yeoh's career is harder to track here in the US since not all of her films are released here.Nevertheless,let's do our posterized retrospective.We've pruned just a bit for lack of quality posters or obscurity but this is nearly everything starting with her first leading role in 1985 inYes,Madam!(which has apparently been retitledPolice Assassins),a dual-lead action vehicle with American actress Cynthia Rothrock (of late 80s B movie fame).Anyway...on to the pictorial survey.

The film's massive ensemble is led by Constance Wu as Rachel Chu,a self-made economics professor set for her fated meeting with the overseas family of her charming boyfriend Nick Young,played by a painfully dashing Henry Golding.Unbeknownst to Rachel,this family wedding getaway is about to thrust her center stage in front of one of the wealthiest families in Singapore.And all of the generational expectations and deceptive opulence that entails...
