Laura (Penelope Cruz) and her children travel from Buenos Aires to the small Spanish village where she was born to attend her sister's wedding. Unexpected events soon lead to a crisis that exposes the family's hidden past. Suspicions mount, loved ones begin to turn on one another, and dark secrets long hidden threaten to come to light, revealing shocking truths. This gripping thriller from Oscar-winning filmmaker Asghar Farhadi also stars Javier Bardem and Ricardo Darín.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Certified Fresh79%
Critics Consensus: Everybody Knows is somewhat less than the sum of its parts despite the efforts of an outstanding cast - and a disappointing step back for writer-director Asghar Farhadi.

Slow kidnap story is more soggy soap than tense thriller.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Everybody Knows is a mature Spanish-language drama about the kidnapping of a teen girl. The kidnapping itself isn't shown, but there are threats, arguing, yelling, and general tension. A tiny bit of blood is shown when a character gets a cut/wound. Teens flirt and kiss; married couples also flirt, and there's some sex-related talk. Abortion is mentioned. Language includes a few uses of "f--k," "bitch," "goddamn," etc. Social drinking is prevalent at a wedding, and teens sneak some wine and cigarettes (one is shown to be sick/drunk afterward). A minor character is shown drunk and surly in a bar, and characters smoke cigarettes. Despite being directed by Oscar winner Asghar Farhadi and starring Oscar-winning actors Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, the movie is a bit tiresome; it's more of a long, slow soap opera than a tense crime story.
