Everything, Everywhere, All at Once has been a hot topic ever since it was released in 2022. Best Picture at the Academy Awards, Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor at the Golden Globes, etc., have all been bestowed upon the film starring Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu, and Jamie Lee Curtis. It’s easy to see why this photograph has become so popular and why it deserves to win so many accolades. The story follows Evelyn Wang as she travels through multiple dimensions in search of Jobu Tupaki in an effort to stop him from destroying the universe in this science fiction comedy-drama. Nonetheless, Everything, Everywhere, All at Once is a story about a mother and her daughter, a mother and her extended family, and a mother struggling with her own past, present, and future. It’s a weird movie about existentialism and generational trauma, complete with hot dog fingers, a raccoon chef, and nonstop time travel. Everything, Everywhere, At the Same Time is remarkable because it is completely original. The novels that follow all deal with themes similar to those of the film, such as dysfunctional families, time travel, and the difficulty of making plans for the future.
