This multi-Oscar®-winning film creates an unclassifiable meld of action, sci-fi, drama, comedy and romance, with award-winning performances from Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis.
Dirs. Daniel Kwan, Daniel Scheinert / United States / 2022 / English, Cantonese and Mandarin with English subtitles
Easily one of the most talked-about films of the past year, the writing-directing duo known as The Daniels, masters of emotional bizarro, create an unclassifiable meld of action, sci-fi, drama, comedy and romance in Everything Everywhere All At Once. Michelle Yeoh, in a performance that would earn her the Best Actress Oscar®, is Evelyn Quan Wang, a middle-aged Chinese American immigrant who runs a laundromat with her husband, Waymond, played with deep-felt sincerity by Ke Huy Quan, in another Oscar®-winning turn. Her marriage on the brink of divorce, hounded by the IRS, and with a fractured relationship with her only daughter (Stephanie Hsu), Evelyn is pulled into parallel universes, each created by a different life choice. Impossible to summarise, but an unmissable big screen experience. And now... outdoors!
