Michelle Yeoh’s Chinese immigrant is swept up in an insane adventure, where she alone can save the world by exploring other universes connecting with the lives she could have led.
Overwhelmed by a tax audit and difficulties with husband Waymond, Evelyn (Yeoh) is visited by another version of Waymond from what he calls the Alpha verse. Here humans have learned to “verse jump” and are threatened by an omniverse agent of chaos known as Jobu Tupaki. Soon, Evelyn is thrust into a universe-hopping adventure that has her questioning everything she thought she knew about her life, her failures, and her love for her family. As absurd as it is profound, deeply moving and wholly original. The film’s final act is contemplative and heart-bursting with substance and will monopolize your mind long after it ends.
