Everything Everywhere All At Once | Film Club #17

May 24, 2022

For this episode we’re talking about the new movie Everything Everywhere All At Once, directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, also known as Daniels. 

When it premiered at the South By Southwest Festival this spring, it was described as “a hilarious and big-hearted sci-fi action-adventure about an exhausted Chinese American woman who can’t seem to finish her taxes.”

Hong-Kong action star Michelle Yeoh plays that exhausted woman who, in struggling with a tax audit, gets taken on a wild journey through the multiverse. 

Our youth film critics got together to talk about Everything Everywhere All At Once, how it uses maximalism to tell its story, its unique approach to the multiverse, and the legacy they hope the movie will have.

Roundtable hosted by Zinn Rogers.

Hosted by Madison Knutson.

Music by Kendrick Whiteman.
