‘Everybody Knows’ Trailer: Farhadi’s Cannes Opener Stars Cruz, Bardem

Farhadi’s Cannes Opener

Asghar Farhadi’s latest film Everybody Knows, starring Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, will open the 71st Cannes Film Festival, and now the first international trailer has arrived.

Carolina travels with her family from Buenos Aires to her native village in Spain for a celebration. What was meant to be a short visit is disrupted by unforeseen events that will completely change their lives.

This psychological thriller is one of the few openers not in either English or French to open Cannes, but it does not have a U.S. distributor yet. Watch the trailer below for the film also starring Ricardo Darin.

Farhadi’s Cannes Opener

Asghar Farhadi’s 8th feature film, shot entirely in Spanish on the Iberian Peninsula, charts the story of Laura, who lives with her husband and children in Buenos Aires. When they return together to her native village in Spain for a family celebration, an unexpected event changes the course of their lives. The family, its ties and the moral choices imposed on them lie, as in every one of Farhadi’s scripts, at the heart of the plot.
