Bruce Gilbert and Lauren Mikus provided the music supervision for A24’s Everything Everywhere All At Once, which premiered at SXSW to rave reviews and a standing ovation.
Evelyn Wang (Michelle Yeoh) is a neurotic, high-strung laundromat owner who is getting audited by the IRS. Her marriage to Waymond (Ke Huy Quan) is loveless and stressful, and her relationship with her daughter Eleanor (Stephanie Hsu) is even more strained. Evelyn is so in her own head that she doesn’t realize how her misery, unhappiness and denial about the stagnant state of her life affects others. And her disconnection from reality causes a ripple effect in every part of the multiverse. Yes, that’s right. Thousands of versions of her exist across a vast multiverse where she lives different lives and has different skills.
The Los Angeles Times describe Daniel Scheinert and Dan Kwan’s latest film as “perfectly bizarre and emotional”, and Deadline praised the film’s ability to create a “vast world around the concept of love, family, tradition” through the lens of “an ADHD-fueled acid trip.”
Bruce and Lauren also music supervised the Sundance Film Festival hit, Emily the Criminal. The thriller, written and directed by John Patton Ford, tells the story of Emily (Aubrey Plaza), who is down on her luck and saddled with debt and gets involved in a credit card scam that pulls her into the criminal underworld of Los Angeles, ultimately leading to deadly consequences.
