Everybody Knows trailer: Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem star in Asghar Farhadi's new film
Asghar Farhadi has become one of the most highly-respected directors in world cinema thanks to his family orientated dramas-thrillers. It saw him pick up the Best Foreign Oscar in 2017 for The Salesman, an event for which he was not allowed to travel to thanks to the US government's infamous 'Muslim ban'. Everybody Knows (Todos lo saben) opened in Cannes earlier this year to a mediocre critical response, a far cry from the lavish praise Farhadi is usually adorned with. The first trailer for the Everybody Knows has arrived online, and you can check it out above.
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.
As always, Farhadi penned the script, and Cruz stars alongside spouse Javier Bardem. The rest of the cast features the always great Ricardo Darín, Bárbara Lennie, Inma Cuesta, Elvira Mínguez, Eduard Fernández, and Ramón Barea.
Everybody Knows will open in UK cinemas on March 8th 2019.
