Everybody Knows | Ratings & Reviews

"Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem married in 2010, nine years after shooting Jamón Jamón, their first film together. Nine years and numerous collaborations later, they return, together on screen once again, this time playing ex-lovers in Asghar Farhadi’s suspense mystery thriller Everybody Knows."

"The mystery becomes popcorn-chompingly compelling, each new piece of information adding shading and dimension to the true shape of the family. Nobody is above suspicion or below empathy."


"Cruz may have the showier role, but the men - Bardem and Darín both - wind up baring their souls in astonishing ways."


"The film is too laden with its own riches, a festival jewel that glares instead of gleams."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"The performances themselves are so intelligent, mature and yet uninhibited. Farhadi's storytelling has overpowering force."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"The trailer and plot outline may make Everybody Knows sound like a thriller, but Farhadi has a more complex and nuanced story to tell."


"...I found the impeccable pace of this intriguing mystery immensely satisfying."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"Absorbing enough but lacking in any real sense of revelation...this undeniably gifted storyteller seems firmly stuck on Cruz control."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"The narrative keeps hobbling from one plot strand to the other without ever really becoming a gripping maelstrom of revelations as things get progressively worse for the characters."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Still, with its rich story, its weighty themes, and the beautiful acting of its charismatic stars (and real-life spouses), Cruz and Bardem, it's the classiest soap opera around."
