Everybody Knows: Asghar Farhadi’s New Movie, Starring Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz

Asghar Farhadi, the two-time Oscar-winning Iranian director of “A Separation” and “The Salesman,” has begun photography in Madrid on “Everybody Knows” (“Todos Lo Saben”), a psychological thriller starring Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Ricardo Darin.

Budgeted at 10 million euros ($11.8 million), the Spanish-language film is produced by Alexandre Mallet-Guy at Paris-based Memento Films Production and Alvaro Longoria at Spanish outfit Morena Films.

Written by Farhadi, “Everybody Knows” follows the journey of Carolina as she travels with her family from Buenos Aires to her hometown in Spain for a celebration. Meant to be a brief visit, the trip is disturbed by unforeseen events that will completely change the lives of Carolina and her family.

“Everybody Knows” marks the third collaboration between Farhadi and Mallet-Guy after “The Salesman” and “The Past,” which Memento Films produced and distributed in France. Before winning a foreign-language Oscar, “The Salesman” scooped two awards at last year’s Cannes for best script for Farhadi and best actor for Shahab Hosseini, while “The Past” earned Berenice Bejo a best actress award at Cannes in 2013.

Crew

“Everybody Knows’” key crew includes Jose-Luis Alcaine, a cinematographer who has worked with Carlos Saura, Bigas Luna and Pedro Almodovar; Sonia Grande, the costume designer of Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris” and Alejandro Amenábar’s “The Others”; and Hayedeh Safiyari, the editor who worked with Farhadi on “A Separation” and “The Salesman.
