Best romantic movies: Always Be My Maybe

Release Year: 2019

Directed by Nahnatchka Khan

Starring Ali Wong, Randall Park, James Saito, Michelle Buteau, Vivian Bang, Daniel Dae Kim, and Keanu Reeves

Always Be My Maybe premiered on Netflix in May 2019, and it was a huge success. Ali Wong and Randall Park, who also star in the movie, wrote the screenplay with Michael Golamco.

In the movie, Wong stars as Sasha Tran and Park stars as Marcus Kim. Sasha and Marcus were childhood friends through their teens, but they lose touch after Marcus spirals following his mother’s death.

Years later, Sasha returns to the Bay area as a famous chef to open a restaurant while Marcus struggles to embrace adulthood and still lives alone. When they get close again, things start to happen between the old friends and old sparks reignite.

Always Be My Maybe is one of my favorite Netflix movies so far! It’s just so good. Ali Wong and Randall Park have incredible chemistry, and I absolutely love Keanu Reeves, Vivian Bang, and Michelle Buteau in this movie.

Can we please get this cast back together again in another movie? Please, please, please and thank you.
