‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ Resonates With a Diversity of Audiences

Co-director Daniel Kwan wasn’t sure if viewers would connect with the movie and its multiverse theory when it was released in March 2022, but they did.

“We tried to make a movie that everyone can relate with, but we thought we’d fail,” said Kwan, who worked with co-creator Daniel Scheinert. “But it turns out we didn’t, like literally everybody has something they can relate with.”

It seems that Hollywood can connect. The A24 movie, which received more Oscar nominations this week than any other movie, will reopen in 1,400 cinemas throughout the country on Friday after grossing $104.1 million internationally.

At the March 12 Academy Awards, the movie is nominated for 11 Oscars, including best picture and lead actress for Michelle Yeoh. Ke Huy Quan is the front-runner for best supporting actor, while Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu are contending for best actress in a supporting role.

Evelyn Wang, a Chinese American immigrant who struggles with her taxes, her connection with her family, and her whole life, is followed in “Everything Everywhere All at Once” . She then learns that she may travel between parallel worlds as many selves in order to preserve the multiverse and perhaps even her familial ties.

Even after putting love and teamwork into the movie, Yeoh, who has already received a Golden Globe for the part, said one never knows how it will do.

“Once it is all done and you put it out to the world, there is no control of how it will be received, and I think sometimes it’s the alignment of the stars,” said the Malaysian actress.

Kwan is of the opinion that Yeoh is the reason the movie is as successful as it is. He claimed that while they were unsure of how the film would turn out, she attracted additional cast and crew members like a magnet.

Hsu portrays two of the most nuanced characters in the movie: Jobu, the evil guy from the universe, and Joy, Evelyn’s daughter.

She claimed it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and an absolute blast.

“I remember filming the hallway scene where we’re introduced to Jobu for the first time,” Hsu said. “And I’m going through all these costumes, I’m like doing kung-fu, I’m like blowing up a cop’s face into confetti.”
