The movie – which was launched in the UK just last summer – has already raked in over $65m at the global Box Office, becoming one of the most successful releases of the last 12 months.

Written and directed by the duo of Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the film begins with main character Evelyn Wang (Michelle Yeoh) as she battles with the IRS whilst filing taxes from her laundry business.

However, as an interdimensional rupture unravels reality, she is forced to become an unlikely hero that channels her newfound powers in order to overcome the most bizarre, otherworldly dangers across multiple different universes.

The second film made by Kwan and Schienert – known as the Daniels – Everything Everywhere All at Once follows 2016’s popular cult hit Swiss Army Man, which starred Paul Dano (The Batman) as a suicidal man who tries to convince a corpse (Daniel Radcliffe) that life is worth living, as he re-introduces society to the amnesiac corpse in order to bring him back to life.

During the movie, Evelyn faces her nemesis Jobu Tupaki, who she tempts into joining her in ‘The Everything Bagel’, a black hole of sorts, which has the power to suck everything into a vortex of nothingness.

Since viewing the film, many cinema-goers have questioned what the bagel represents in the film and, while it is open to interpretation, it is believed to represent depression or the journey of a person who is attempting to destroy themselves.
