EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE
Everything Everywhere All at Once is a 2022 American absurdist science fiction comedy-drama film written and directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (collectively known as "Daniels"), who produced it with the Russo brothers. The plot centers on a Chinese American immigrant (played by Michelle Yeoh) who, while being audited by the IRS, discovers that she must connect with parallel universe versions of herself to prevent a powerful being from causing the destruction of the multiverse. Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, Jenny Slate, Harry Shum Jr., James Hong, and Jamie Lee Curtis appear in supporting roles. The film has been described by The New York Times as a "swirl of genre anarchy" and incorporates elements of black comedy, science fiction, fantasy, martial arts films, and animation. Kwan and Scheinert had researched the concept of the multiverse as far back as 2010, and they began penning the screenplay by 2016.
