Everybody Knows is a 2019 Memento Films Production,Morena Films,Lucky Red. is scheduled to be released on February 6, 2019.
The drama "Everybody Knows," directed by two-time Oscar winner Asghar Farhadi and starring Spaniards Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz, will open the 71st edition of the Cannes Film Festival, Variety's digital edition reported.
"Everybody Knows" ("Everyone knows it") will be the second film in Spanish to open the contest in its history after it did "La mala educación", by Pedro Almodóvar, in 2004.
The Iranian filmmaker previously presented at the Croisette the tapes "The Past" (2013) and "The Salesman" (2016). The film, written by Farhadi himself, tells the story of a woman who travels with her family from Buenos Aires to her village
natal in Spain for a celebration and what was to be a brief family visit will be disrupted by unforeseen events.
The origin of the story is in a journey that the filmmaker made in southern Spain thirteen years ago, when he found the streets papered by the face of a missing girl who had been kidnapped.
Farhadi won his first Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film for "A Separation" (2011) and repeated with "The Salesman", although he did not go to pick him up in Los Angeles in protest at the veto decreed by the US government at the entrance of citizens of Iran, among other countries.
