everywhere together Our lives crashed earlier this year, and I know I’m still not okay—mainly because it’s one of the most romantic lines ever that crushed my heart into a million pieces. While the film’s story revolves around the laundromat owner Evelyn Wang (Michelle Yeoh), who travels through different universes to stop the evil known as Jabu Tupaki, she and her daughter Joey (Stephanie Sue). tries to repair the lost relationship between There is another relationship of utmost importance: that of Evelyn and her husband, Waymond (Ke Hui Quan).
Their relationship isn’t perfect, and throughout the movie, we see multiple universes where it doesn’t work out, but it’s at the core of Evelyn’s journey. Waymond helps guide her on this journey, helping her to explain what’s going on with the jump between universes, though Waymond and Evelyn are sometimes married in the film’s alternate universes and sometimes , they are not.
That’s how we end up with one of the most romantic lines ever. The writer/director duo known as Danielle (consisting of Daniel Kwan and Danielle Scheinert) brought us a film about relationships, a flawed woman who is sad about her life situation and a new purpose. Trying to find, and a journey through the infinite possibilities life creates for us.
The Quote That Will Be in a Million Wedding Speeches
In the universe that Evelyn accesses, she is an actress in one. Instead of living her life with Waymond, she followed her dreams, and with that, Waymond lacked her future. Nevertheless, she sees him after attending a movie premiere, and the two have a conversation and end the film, when the fight between Joey and Evelyn reaches a breaking point. At that point, Evelyn catches glimpses of important moments in her life with Waymond, taking us back to the universe where she followed her dreams.
He tells her, “In Second Life, I’d really just like to do laundry and tax with you,” and if this isn’t at least the biggest declaration of love in cinema this year, I don’t know what is. .
It’s gorgeous because throughout the movie, Evelyn brushes off her reality and almost regrets her decisions. But in the meantime, Waymond tried to express his displeasure, but didn’t want to hurt anyone. He wanted his life to be easy and happy, and when it didn’t, he took the blame on himself, and even in that final scene, he says that he thinks it’s his fault, and it’s a character’s fault. As is a testament to him that while his reaction to their relationship varies across all universes, he is always in love with Evelyn above all else.
And really, isn’t that what we’re all looking for? Someone who will willingly do the boring and mundane life stuff with us and enjoy it? That’s real romance.
