Opens March 1, 2019

Laura (Penélope Cruz) and her children travel from Buenos Aires to the village where she was born, on a Spanish vineyard, to attend her sister's wedding, but unexpected events lead this gathering toward a crisis that exposes the family's hidden past.

Asghar Farhadi (The Salesman) delivers another powerful portrait of family secrets and complicated moral questions with Everybody Knows. Set in Spain, married Laura (Cruz) has returned to her hometown for the first time in years for her sister's wedding, only to be reunited with her former lover Paco (Javier Bardem). But when her daughter goes missing, Laura faces a terrible dilemma: Did she run off... or has she been kidnapped? Everybody Knows is a gripping thriller with more than one mystery at its core. The film's secret weapon, however, is Bárbara Lennie (The Skin I Live In), who is fantastic as Paco's wife, and who only slowly comes to understand how little about her spouse she truly knows.
