Everything Everywhere All at Once Is the Surprise Indie Hit You Don’t Want to Miss
Trying to explain Everything Everywhere All at Once is a difficult task. It’s one of those movies where, truly, you’ll have to see it to believe it. It’s an action movie, a sci-fi, a drama, and a comedy all wrapped up into one movie. The main cast, including Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Ke Huy Quan, all take on multiple roles throughout the film, often in surprising and exciting ways. From start to finish, the film keeps you on your toes. Everything Everywhere All at Once is one of the best movies of 2022.
Michelle Yeoh stars as Evelyn Quan Wang, a wife, mother and laundromat owner who discovers–in the midst of filing her taxes–that she’s the last hope to save various alternative realities, which are in peril due to an alternate, villainous version of her daughter, Joy. In attempting to defeat the evil Joy (named Jobu Tupaki), Evelyn learns more about her own reality and the ways in which her choices have impacted her relationship with her husband and her daughter. Amid the fight scenes and the comedic moments, there are touching emotional scenes that explore important themes surrounding family, love, and regret.
The film’s unexpected success has catapulted it into underdog status during the 2023 awards season. Everything Everywhere All at Once grabbed 11 Oscar nominations, including a coveted Best Picture slot. Fans are rooting for Stephanie Hsu and Jamie Lee Curtis, who are both nominated for Best Supporting Actress, and Ke Huy Quan, who retired from acting in 2002 after he found trouble getting roles in the United States, is the heavy favorite to win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. Post Everything Everywhere, he’s set to star in Season 2 of Loki and the new series American Born Chinese, both of which will stream on Disney+.
With its surprising number of nominations, it’s sure to win at least one category. The film is also nominated for Best Director, Best Actress, Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Song, Best Original Score, Best Costume Design, and Best Film Editing.
