Everything Everywhere All at Once
Director: Daniel Kwan, Daniel Scheinert
Cast: Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, Jenny Slate, Harry Shum Jr., James Hong, Jamie Lee Curtis

Just as her family’s laundromat business, her marriage, and her relationship with her daughter are in tatters, Chinese American immigrant Evelyn Wang learns that each of her life choices creates a parallel universe. Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert’s second feature is a brilliantly inventive mixture of wacky comedy, kick-ass action, mindbending science fiction, and moving family drama. The relentless pace, genre hopping, movie references, and visual fireworks can get exhausting at times, but the complicated multiverse is ultimately just a tool for Evelyn to discover the best version of herself. Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and Jamie Lee Curtis won Academy Awards for their performances, and the Daniels for writing, directing, and producing.
