Reviews:
"If the film remains largely watchable it is because Farhadi has cast some of the finest actors in Spain and they know how to breathe life into their characters....Bardem and especially Cruz impress in roles specifically written for them..." - 05/08/2018 Hollywood Reporter


"[T]he real intrigue arises on the margins, as Farhadi explores the suppressed history between Paco and Laura. This is where he excels as a director..." - 05/08/2018 Variety


"It’s admirably bold to tell a kidnapping story in which the crime is secondary almost to the point of being irrelevant....Cruz, Bardem, and Darín all do typically fine work..." - 11/27/2018 A.V. Club


"Cruz and Bardem throw all their talent and charisma into the mix; they’re a pleasure to watch. And Spanish cinematographer José Luis Alcaine lights the film to reveal a ripe beauty that recalls his work for Pedro Almodovar." - 02/08/2019 Rolling Stone


"Asghar Farhadi is unsurpassed in his surgical examination of the ways in which unexpected developments can bring history to the fore..." - 01/01/2019 Film Comment


"EVERYBODY KNOWS is the kind of barely resistible potboiler the studios used to turn out by the yard in the 1940s and ’50s, with stars like Susan Hayward and Robert Mitchum driving each other crazy from repressed lusts." - 02/14/2019 Boston Globe


"As one would expect, his writing and direction are precise, each new revelation fitting together as neatly as the gears in his opening shot. The cast is exemplary, from the leads down to the supporting players." - 02/08/2019 The Atlantic


"[A] slow-building sucker punch of a film that finds its biggest truths in its smallest moments." - 06/07/2019 Entertainment Weekly
