This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

To launch our new Beacon Season showcasing the wonderfully rich diversity of films from British international film-makers we are pleased to be screening Everybody Knows the latest film from two-time Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film Asghar Farhadi (A Separation and The Salesman).Laura (Penlope Cruz), a Spanish woman living in Buenos Aires, returns with her two children to her hometown outside Madrid to attend her sisters wedding. However, when Lauras teenage wild child daughter Irene goes missing, old secrets and bitter grudges emerge that turn the trip into a psychological nightmare. As you would expect from Farhadi, there is a complex puzzle at the heart of the script involving past entanglements with local vineyard-owner Paco (Javier Bardem). Supremely watchable, much of the pleasure in following how this taut thriller unravels is to observe what it reveals about the motivation of the characters in their own lives….the performances themselves are so intelligent, mature and yet uninhibited. Farhadis storytelling has overpowering force.
