Everybody Knows (12A)
It would not be KFF without a Farhadi film. Add in a cast that includes Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, and it makes for unmissable combination!
Everybody Knows takes us away from Farhadi’s familiar Iranian territory to Argentina and Spain.
The film follows Laura (Cruz) on her travels from Argentina to her small home town in Spain for her sister's wedding, bringing her two children along for the occasion. Amid the joyful reunion and festivities, the eldest daughter is abducted. In the tense days that follow, various family and community tensions surface and deeply hidden secrets are revealed.
As he transfers his talents to a European setting and Spanish-speaking cast, Farhadi loses none of his remarkable ability to observe close relationships collapsing under stress. Globe and Mail
