Everybody Knows

"With its rich story, its weighty themes, and the beautiful acting of its charismatic stars (and real-life spouses), Cruz and Bardem, it's the classiest soap opera around." - BBC.com

"Penelope Cruz shines in the movie that opened this year’s Cannes Film Festival — a slow-burning mystery thriller that sees a Spanish family thrown into turmoil by a kidnapping. The A-list star plays Laura, who goes back to her home village for a wedding — a jolly affair until her teenage daughter Irene is snatched in the night.

"The kidnappers threaten to kill Irene if the police are informed, so the distraught Laura relies on her family and friends for help, with old flame Paco (Javier Bardem) leading the chase. Both now with new partners, she and Paco find themselves forced to confront secrets from their shared past.

"Part whodunnit, part family melodrama, this latest film from Oscar-winning Iranian writer/director Asghar Farhadi (A Separation, The Salesman) plays out like an arthouse Ruth Rendell mystery. Cruz is heartbreakingly convincing as the exhausted mother oscillating between fear, panic and confusion, while her real-life husband Bardem is excellent as the conflicted Paco.

"As a thriller, Everybody Knows is a credible, involving portrait of a family that shows off the talents of world cinema's glamorous power couple." - Metro
