Incredible and absurd performance by her. Everything Everywhere All At Once clearly centers around the mother-daughter dynamic and the disconnect between the two - generationally, emotionally, etc.
Jamie's performance is made even more impactful given her previous role in Freaky Friday, which echoes the same themes of mother-daughter disconnect, and ultimate finding of common ground and resolution, between Jamie and her daughter Lindsay Lohan. Evelyn's growth and resulting understanding of Joy's struggles as the daughter of immigrant parents echoes the same sort of understanding that Jamie developed after swapping bodies with her daughter in Freaky Friday.
Just thought this connection resulted in a very fitting and interesting casting choice for Deirdre the IRS agent that I haven't seen discussed yet. Any other callback-esque casting choices ?
