Packed inside the breakneck crazy multiverse film Everything Everywhere All at Once is some real wisdom.
My favorite character is the unfailingly nice Waymond, the husband of the main character. One minute he seems a bit out of touch, and the next minute he is the man with the plan.
He embodies the idea that optimism is courageous and powerful. Being cynical and guarded might seem smart, but it will never land you on the moon or win a big battle. Did you ever hear a great general say, “I’m not sure we can do this, guys.” Being optimistic is strategic and necessary.
When I choose to see the good side of things, I’m not being naive. It is strategic and necessary. It’s how I learned to survive through everything.Waymond from Everything Everywhere All at Once
Thank you, Waymond. 🙏
Side note: Ke Huy Quan, who played Waymond, was also the little kid in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and The Goonies. 🤯
