Everything Everywhere All At Once
THE WORLDWIDE hit film Everything Everywhere All At Once from A24 Studios is finally showing in Philippine cinemas. In the film, Evelyn (Michelle Yeoh) has to confront a multiverse on the brink of collapse — an extreme manifestation of the sensory overload that the modern world is increasingly defined by — to see the family that has always been there. Directed by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the film also stars Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, James Hong, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Jenny Slate. Empire Magazine’s Ben Travis writes: “A pure firework display of technical bravado, wild invention, emotional storytelling, comedic genius, action mastery and outstanding performances, Everything Everywhere All At Once is everything cinema was invented for.” Review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a very high score of 95%.
