Come watch this broadly buzzed-about multiverse comedy and see what the hype is about! This indie box office hit is a trippy science fiction meets martial arts meets fantasy meets The Matrix meets Buddhism film. Quite a lot of things happening there. In a lot of places. At the same time. Pretty much what the title tells you, right?

You’ll have the most fun if you come to the movie unprepared. But for those of you who must know what they’re getting themselves into, here’s the premise:
Evelyn and her husband Waymond have an unsuccessful laundromat, a rebellious daughter and a tax return that never gets completed. Just when it all gets too much for her, the universe shatters into an infinite number of universes and Evelyn is no longer just a laundromat owner, but an internationally renowned film star, kung fu master, chef and perhaps the hero everyone needed all along.
The term multiverse refers to the idea that there are many other (parallel) universes besides the visible universe we live in. Dan Kwan & Daniel Scheinert run with that idea for this cheerfully anarchic film, giving each universe a different look, with nods to films like The Matrix, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Ratatouille and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
The result is a movie that feels like a weird trip. We can’t exactly prepare you for it, so it’s best to just go, sit tight, hold on, and enjoy the ride!
