Everybody Knows Rated 15

Everybody Knows

Dir. Asghar Farhadi. Spain, 2018. 2h 13m. Spanish/subs. Starring Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Ricardo Darín, Eduard Fernández, Bárbara Lennie, Inma Cuesta.

Laura and her two children travel from Argentina to Spain to attend her sister's wedding. The joyful reunion soon turns tragic when her older daughter is kidnapped. A lusty melodrama from Iranian auteur and two-time Oscar-winner Asghar Farhadi (A Separation, The Salesman).

‘The performances themselves are so intelligent, mature and yet uninhibited. Farhadi's storytelling has overpowering force.’ ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘Once again, he has delivered a provocative meditation on the dynamics of communication. Knowledge is power, but in “Everybody Knows,” nobody’s quite certain about the whole truth.’ ★★★★ Eric Kohn, IndieWire
