Atmospheric and evocative... It's not the best of Farhadi, but even a lesser Farhadi is better than most films.
March 21, 2019
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.
March 8, 2019
A film of heart-wrenching moments that never quite lands a telling emotional blow.
March 4, 2019
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.
March 3, 2019
The acting's uniformly strong, always at the service of a knotty story.
March 1, 2019
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.
February 28, 2019
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.
February 21, 2019
The people in the movie are keeping secrets from each other, and "Everybody Knows" is keeping secrets from us.
February 15, 2019
Farhadi ameliorates the sense of familiarity by bringing in more surprises.
February 14, 2019
"Everybody Knows" is a reminder that sometimes we just want to go to movies to watch pretty people screw up their lives.
February 14, 2019
If this is a "B" Asghar Farhadi film, it's still better than the "A" efforts of many other filmmakers.
February 13, 2019
It's a look in philosophical harmony with Farhadi's intense but humane gaze. And the actors are superb...
February 13, 2019
Think of it this way: If this were a book, it would be described as a page-turner.
February 12, 2019
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.
February 9, 2019
The movie is not to be skipped. You should sample its mixture of bacchanal and gall, and revel in Farhadi's dependable deftness, as he sketches and frames his collection of characters.
February 8, 2019
Few filmmakers have ever been as gifted at affirming the degree to which we are more alike than we may ever have thought possible.
February 8, 2019
As a piece of storytelling, Everybody Knows covers a vast expanse of human experience, but it doesn't dive very deep.
Top Critic

As ever, Farhadi shines at creating characters whose emotional complexity helps disguise his penchant for arbitrary plot twists.
Top Critic
February 7, 2019
The emotions in Everybody Knows are palpable, but the storytelling stumbles.
February 7, 2019
Perhaps not Farhadi's most piercing work but surely a polished, textured, and very engaging effort
