The Quick Explanation
Everything Everywhere All at Once is a simple movie told in a grand, chaotic, complicated fashion. At its core, it’s a family drama about parent-child dynamics, generational trauma, and choosing positivity in the face of negativity, or, as Waymond puts it, being kind. Evelyn is in a negative place because of a bad relationship with her father. For years, she has taken it out on her husband and daughter.
Ultimately, Everything Everywhere is just Evelyn becoming aware of her own trauma and the damage she’s done—Waymond wants a divorce, Joy is contemplating s***ide—and figuring out how to forge a new path forward. All of the multiversal madness is just a way to make this journey feel fresh and exciting. The bagel is a euphemism for depression and nihilism and an urge for self-destruction. In fact, we get to see the “normal” version of this story in the universe where Evelyn and Joy decide to stay and live, the one where everything works out with the taxes and the family is happy, no super powers, no hot dog hands.
As strange as Everything Everywhere is, its main conceit of healing wounds in important relationships is something that has resonated very strongly with viewers. It gives viewers hope that they, or someone they love, can do the same. That it’s not too late.
