Reviews

“Everything is surprising in a Farhadi film, and this one twists and turns like a frightened snake; there are secrets, lies, revelations and reveals ... performed, by brilliant actors, with total integrity.” C.J.Johnson ABC Radio ( Australia)

“Is Everybody Knows as searing and devastating a film as Farhadi's best work? Probably not, but it is surely one of his most relatable.”– Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post

“The film is briskly paced and visually gorgeous, the winegrowing region of Spain providing a colourful backdrop to the drama..”David Stratton, The Australian.
