Everybody Knows

(Todos lo saben)

Nominated for eight Goya Awards

The family wedding, traditional setting for easy comedy or social satire, gets a psychological twist Poster for Everybody Knowsfrom the Oscar-winning Iranian director Asghar Farhadi (A Separation; The Salesman). Laura (Penelope Cruz) returns from Argentina to her home village in Spain for her sister’s wedding, bringing her young son and teenage daughter with her. All is joyous reunion, especially with the ebullient Paco (Javier Bardem), a local vintner whom Laura loved in her youth. But when the teenage Irene disappears mid-festivities and a ransom note arrives, the family’s suspicions turn to Laura’s absent husband (Ricardo Darín), Paco or perhaps even one of themselves.

As he transfers his talents to a European setting, Farhadi loses none of his remarkable ability to observe close relationships collapsing under stress, and pulls off a powerfully twisted ending: What this family has done to itself reverberates long after the lights come up.
