Laura (Penélope Cruz) returns from Argentina with her two children for a family wedding in her Spanish hometown. However, the celebrations are suddenly disrupted by a shocking crime that unearths a web of long-buried secrets and lies. This tense psychological drama from acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi finds much of its intrigue in the complex relationships within this close-knit community. Cruz, Javier Bardem and Ricardo Darín are brilliant as the characters working between the lines of the families’ fragile bonds.
