Where to watch ‘Everywhere, everything at once’ Story-level
Well, well, well, it looks like awards season hasn’t been a complete wash after all. The SAG Awards proved it last night, when Michelle Yeoh won Best Performance by an Actress, for her leading role in Everything everywhere at once. Yeoh made history as the first Asian woman to receive the award. During her acceptance speech, she reflected on what the award meant to her community. “I think if I speak, my heart will explode,” she told the cheering crowd. “SAG-AFTRA, to get this from you that you understand what it’s like to get here… This isn’t just for me, it’s for all the girls who look like me.” If you haven’t seen yet Everything everywhere at oncetake Yeoh’s victory as a sign to do so.
The film, which was one of The best Esquire movies of 2022—follows Evelyn Quan (Michelle Yeoh), an overworked mother who discovers she can travel between dimensions. When she is approached by an alternate universe version of her husband (Ke Huy Quan), Evelyn embarks on a journey to save the world and her fleeting relationship with her daughter (Stephanie Hsu). Although the movie is labeled an action comedy, those who have seen it would say that it is much, much more. By exploring the possibility of a multiverse, the film teaches an important lesson about loving the life you’ve been given.
Everything everywhere at once premiered on March 11, 2022 to rave reviews. In an interview with deadline, Kwan and his co-director, Daniel Scheinert, spoke about the success of the film. “I think we knew that,” Scheinert said. “But the reception still humiliated and scared us. And it was the first time we tested how many Story-level resonated with the emotional side of the movie, not just the action.” Kwan continued, “I don’t think we’d be happy if we just made a fun action movie, and I don’t think we’d be happy if just make a philosophical treatise.” Good luck to you, All Everywhere, all at once it is the perfect mix of both.
If you still want to watch the movie, you can find it at Show time, Amazon, Apple TVand hulu. Enjoy, fellow travelers of the multiverse.
