Every new film by the Iranian master, Asghar Farhadi, is an occasion, especially when it stars Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem. Everybody Knows differs from two of his earlier films, which both won Oscars for Best Foreign Language Films (A Separation and The Salesman), in that it is not set in Iran but sun-dappled Spain. Laura arrives from Argentina with her daughter and son to celebrate her younger sister’s wedding in her home village. All goes well until it suddenly doesn’t. Opened this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Ricardo Darín, Bárbara Lennie
