Jamie Lee Curtis is having a good year: with ‘Halloween: The End’ getting good data at the box office (although lower than expected) and participating in one of the films of the year: ‘Everything at once everywhere’. To compose the peculiar character that she plays in the film, Curtis was inspired by another role he played almost 20 years ago.
The original Deirdre?
‘Everything at once, everywhere’ is A24’s latest film, Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinertstarring Michelle Yeoh like Evelyn Wang, a woman who runs a laundry and, going one day to pay her bills, ends up discovering the existence of the multiverse.
Jamie Lee Curtis plays Deirdre Beaubeirdrean IRS (Internal Revenue Service) worker, initially one of the antagonists that Evelyn will encounter along the way and some of her other variants in the different alternative realities that we discover throughout history.
In the wake of the film’s release, Curtis shared the character who introduced the Daniels to them as inspiration: Elaine Bowen from ‘Daddy and Them’on whose appearance the directors and the makeup and hair team were based for the construction of Deirdre on a visual level.
‘Daddy and them’ is a dramatic comedy written, directed and starring Billy Bob Thornton in 2001. The cast was completed by Laura Dern, Walton Goggins, Diane Ladd, Ben Affleck and Curtis herself, whose character was Lawrence’s alcoholic wife, Affleck’s role.
‘Everything at the same time, everywhere’ may not break into the top 10 blockbusters of 2022, but it has certainly earned a place in our moviegoing rankings. Unclassifiable, delirious, overwhelming, emotional… If you still don’t know this fantasy of parallel worlds and overflowing action, you have it available at Movistar+.
