Iranian film 'Everybody Knows' has been scheduled to be screened at the 66th edition of the Melbourne International Film Festival in Australia.
Directed by Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, ‘Everybody Knows’ is to represent Iran at the Australian event.
Celebrity couple Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem star in the flick which was premiered at the latest edition of the Cannes Film Festival in France. The film has been shot entirely in Spanish on the Iberian Peninsula.
It is about Laura who lives with her husband and children in Buenos Aires. When they return together at her native village in Spain for a family celebration, an unexpected event changes the course of their lives.
'Everybody Knows' is Farhadi’s second film shot outside Iran. In 2012, he directed 'The Past' in French language in Paris. 'The Past' brought its star, Berenice Bejo, the Palme d’Or for best actress in 2013.
