MWPAI Film Series: Everybody Knows

Location: Sinnott Family - Bank of Utica Auditorium

2 and 7:30 pm

Directed by Asghar Farhadi, 2019, Spain, Rated R, 132 min., Subtitled

Laura (Penélope Cruz) returns to the small Spanish village where she spent her childhood to attend the wedding of her younger sister. Traveling with her free-spirited teenage daughter, Irene, and her young son, she’s soon reunited with a close friend from days gone by, Paco (Javier Bardem). With Laura’s large extended family gathered to celebrate the nuptials, spirits are high and a sense of frivolity reigns. But the wedding night descends from joy to despair when Irene (Carla Campra) suddenly goes missing from her bed. In the place of the sleeping girl are a selection of newspaper clippings, all with stories about a local child who was kidnapped years earlier in the town. Desperate with panic and wracked with grief, Laura turns to Paco for support and assistance as she searches everywhere for Irene. As time passes, the situation only becomes more fraught. Suspicions mount, loved ones begin to turn on one another, and dark secrets long hidden threaten to come to light, revealing shocking truths.
