Film Review: Everything Everywhere All At Once by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert

  • Taryn Bates

Everything Everywhere All At Once (EEAAO) is the second feature film by directors known as the “Daniels,” and it has broken numerous records since releasing in March 2022. Under distribution through indie house A24, the film was originally only given a limited run but quickly increased to a nationwide release due to popular demand – even while the movie theater business struggled to bounce back from pandemic conditions. EEAAO was recognized during awards seasons since its release, setting a high bar with upward of 300 nominations and becoming the first film to sweep the Oscars in all the “above-the- line” categories for which it was nominated: Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress. Clearly this film has had an impact.
