Brittany Murphy is dead at age 32 of cardiac arrest, and in tribute, I have promised myself that I would use the phrase “That’s way harsh, Ty” more in my personal vernacular. What does this have anything to do with me as an Asian American? Not much, honestly. That said, one of Murphy’s final movie roles was in the 2008 film Ramen Girl, where a spoiled American girl abandoned in Tokyo finds herself cooking for a Ramen chef. My friend Lia summarizes the movie the best via twitter: “get past the terrible (terrible!) start of [the movie] and there are some surprisingly lovely moments.”
