Arguably 2022's best movie is finally available to stream at home
If you missed it in the cinema this summer, you now have no excuse not to check it out.
In evidence that word of mouth can still make or break a movie, when this debuted at the SXSW festival in March this year, Twitter immediately exploded.
There were not enough superlatives for viewers to describe how much they loved Everything Everywhere All At Once, which eventually found its way to Irish cinemas in May this year.
And if you didn't catch it in the cinema, then you'll be happy to hear that you can finally watch it on a streaming service this week.
The movie tells the story of a woman (Michelle Yeoh), who is unhappy with her lot in life - a dead end job, boring marriage, distanced daughter, unloving father, about to get audited by the IRS - and who discovers that she may actually be the key to saving existence, in this and all alternative realities.
Co-starring other Hollywood legends like Jamie Lee Curtis, James Hong and Ke Huy Quan, the movie was written and directed by a duo who call themselves The Daniels, who left such an impression that both Taika Waititi and The Russo Brothers have them top of their lists to direct an upcoming entry in the MCU.
The movie truly is an eye-poppingly original piece of art, mixing incredible martial arts action sequences with brain-bending sci-fi ideas (the manner in which you can access parallel universes is very out there), and once again establishes Michelle Yeoh as a practically unparalleled talent. Who else can convincingly kick butt and tug at your heart strings the way she can?
Since release, the movie has become the biggest box office hit in distributor A24's entire filmography, becoming their first movie to make over $100 million at the box office. It also scored a mighty 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, and is a frontrunner for some major Academy attention once those nominations get announced in the next few months.
Everything Everywhere All At Once is available to stream at home right now on Amazon Prime Video.
