O Cinema’s monthly series, SEASONED ACTORS, celebrates the work of an actor that has greatly contributed to the cinematic culture of our lifetimes. And to kick off the 2nd year, our first season will be honoring the work of the trailblazing MICHELLE YEOH!


An aging 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. Directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, collectively known as Daniels, the film is a hilarious and big-hearted sci-fi action adventure about an exhausted Chinese American woman (Michelle Yeoh) who can’t seem to finish her taxes.


Since the acclaimed A24 film EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE was released last spring, it has turned into a full-fledged phenomenon, garnering six Golden Globe nominations and becoming the production company’s first movie to cross the $100 million mark, surpassing HEREDITARY as its highest-grossing project. The success is in no small part due to Yeoh’s lead performance as the Chinese-American immigrant Evelyn, who, in the midst of being audited by the IRS, discovers she must connect with parallel-universe versions of herself to stop a powerful entity from demolishing the multiverse. It’s a role that’s garnered Yeoh both a Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award nod for Best Actress with an Oscar nomination all but guaranteed. The other cast members from the film referred to Yeoh as one thing only: The Queen.
