I suppose it depends which movie you're watching in Everything Everywhere All at Once -
From a review: Science Fiction is usually a gloss over a commentary of our time. Star Trek always did it (when it did it well).
"When Evelyn reveals she always wants to be with Joy, no matter where they are, it is the start of a healing process for both characters from the pain inflicted previously. That is key to overcoming both of their traumas and breaking the generational cycle that causes a rift between parents and their children. At the heart of the film is the message that family matters, so long as one is willing to listen and approach things with an open heart. Besides dealing with family trauma like Encanto, the film explores how a person can be caught between so many expectations, perceptions, and the constant barrage of things in life that require so much of one's attention."
