First of all, let’s mention that the film was completed 3 years ago at the beginning of the pandemic and was an absolute outsider.

The name of the film alone is capable of letting you know that it really contains “Everything everything”, as it constantly shifts between reality and fantasy, the present and the future.

The chaos in this film reflects the corresponding chaos in modern society. The problems are not only not solved, on the contrary they are getting more and more complicated.

With the synopsis of the film as follows “Evelyn, an exhausted Chinese-American woman, not only can’t get along with her father, husband and daughter, but she also can’t pay her taxes. When she is given the ability to jump to other universes, nothing has prepared her for what awaits her».

The film was first shown at a film festival in Texas without any special promotion, but it won over the audience almost immediately, filling the theaters.

As for the “Everything Everything” actors award, the film’s star, Michelle Yeoh, won the best actress award, becoming the first Asian actress to win the award. “To all the little boys and girls who look like me watching tonight, this is a beacon of hope and possibility,” the actress said upon accepting her award, adding “Ladies, never let anyone tell you that it’s too late your paint.”

In addition to Michelle Yeoh, her co-star Ke Huy Quan also received an award as he won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the film.

He also became the first Vietnamese-born actor to win an Oscar. “Mom, I just won an Oscar! They say stories like this only happen in the movies. I can’t believe this is happening to me,” said the obviously moved actor upon receiving the award.
