    Everything Everywhere All at Once


    After seeing this movie, I left the theater last night to check my phone and hear about the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The viewing experience was lovely -- a lively theater, sitting with a cherished loved one and a new friend, getting a little tipsy. This environment was perfect (at least for me) to enjoy…
