Everything Everywhere All At Once is an action-comedy film about an ageing Chinese immigrant lady who is swept up in an insane adventure – she alone can save the world by exploring other universes connecting with the lives she could have led.
Written and directed by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert [as Daniels] (Swiss Army Man).
The movie stars Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu, Jenny Slate, Harry Shum Jr., James Hong and Jamie Lee Curtis.
“Everything Everywhere All at Once is a magical triumph of cinematic storytelling. It’s just a delight from beginning to end. It’s bonkers. It’s hilarious. It’s violent. It’s charming. It’s sweet. It’s great. You’ve never seen anything like this before, so enjoy the ride.” Bloody Disgusting
“In creating a multiverse so wide that even the greatest of miracles are reduced to mere statistical inevitabilities, Daniels have made something truly special: A movie that celebrates the infinite possibilities of its medium by finding a measure of I wouldn’t trade it for the world beauty in every permutation. A movie that reconciles the smallness of our lives with the infinity of their potential.” IndieWire
“Despite how unabashedly bonkers so much of it is, Everything Everywhere All at Once has something for almost everyone. It miraculously manages to mix its highly ridiculous humor with its deeply personal, human storylines to create a film unlike any other. Daniels have officially positioned themselves among the most exciting, original, unmistakably unique directors working today.” Loud and Clear
“If the void arises from the compounding of generational trauma, the Daniels posit that it can be reversed through the unconditional love passed down through those same generations if we choose compassion and understanding over judgment and rejection. Chaos reigns and life may only ever make sense in fleeting moments, but it’s those moments we should cherish.” RogerEbert.com
” …the Daniels are unusually present ringmasters here, eschewing the flippancy that marred their splashy quirk-quake Swiss Army Man for a more big-feeling anarchic escapism. In their nifty code-switching, we-all-contain-multitudes metaphor, they’ve concocted something that feels genuinely attuned to our modern anxieties, but also embracing of our coping mechanisms.” The Wrap
Having premiered at the SXSW festival, Everything Everywhere All At Once will be released theatrically by A24 on March 25th 2022.
