Everybody Knows

Crime Drama


 

Deeply hidden family secrets start to emerge when a teenager is kidnapped during her aunt's wedding in rural Spain.

The story is gripping; each scene provides another piece of the narrative, which is a dark tale that becomes increasingly disturbing. It's uncomfortable to witness what we might be capable of towards our family. Of more interest than our emotional complexity as humans, is our capability for callousness. The actors' performances are authentic and nuanced, as their character's histories and vulnerabilities are revealed, and we travel from family celebration through to family crisis in the hands of a most competent director. Nobody really knows what they know.
