If you haven’t already seen Everything Everywhere All at Once this year yet, here’s your cue. Apart from being the most profoundly deep, utterly hilarious and highly imaginative film I’ve seen this year, the movie has just won Best Feature at the Gotham Awards, and is climbing the ranks as a top Oscar contender for 2023.
Starring Michelle Yeoh, this ambitious movie likened to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, follows laundromat owner Evelyn Wang on a bizarre but epic adventure, where she must tap into versions of herself from parallel universes in order to save the multiverse. But does she have the strength?
By day, Evelyn is just like any other busy mom and wife. Her laundromat business keeps her on her toes, her relationship with her daughter is nothing close to perfect, and her husband, gentle Waymond Wang, misses the marriage they had before life got busy.
Exploring the dynamic between mother and young adult daughter, as well as a long-married husband and wife, the film portrays many of the familial dynamics that occur in our own lives, through a magical visual masterpiece.
How will the family’s lives change, when Evelyn gets to explore herself through the many multiverses? Will she realise just how special her own reality is? And what will save them all in the end?
Directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert from the A24 entertainment company (renowned for their great films) Everything Everywhere All at Once has climbed box office charts and stands alongside Oscar contenders TAR and Aftersun.

If you haven’t seen this already, make this film the next one you watch with the family. The tender reflections of familial woes and how we deal with them will put a tear to your eye, but the brilliant yet absurd humour will enchant and thrill you to the core.
