Everybody Knows (Todos lo saben)

Critics Consensus

Everybody Knows is somewhat less than the sum of its parts despite the efforts of an outstanding cast - and a disappointing step back for writer-director Asghar Farhadi.

  • While Farhadi is a master of the drama, his gifts are at times an awkward fit for a kidnapping thriller. It is almost as if one bought a ticket for a Liam Neeson movie and wound up instead in a Strindberg play.

  • A film of heart-wrenching moments that never quite lands a telling emotional blow.

    Mar 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Farhadi is an excellent screenwriter and an impressive handler of actors, but the film nonetheless adds up to less than the sum of its parts.

    Mar 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The acting's uniformly strong, always at the service of a knotty story.

    Mar 3, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A great finish can save an otherwise ho-hum movie, just as a flat ending can undo an otherwise strong one. "Everybody Knows" is an example of the latter. It's disappointing for everybody involved.

    Mar 1, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • There's a lovely sense, throughout the film, of how real life sometimes interrupts things, the way a child's prattling disrupts the pretty wedding ceremony, or how even in the midst of grief breakfast must be made.
