Toronto festival to screen Farhadi’s “Everybody Knows”
Art and Experience: Asghar Farhadi’s latest movie “Everybody Knows” is among the notable films selected to go on screen at the 43rd Toronto International Film Festival running from September 6 to 16, the organizers have announced.
Starring Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, this layered, psychological drama is about a family wedding interrupted by a shocking crime and some long-buried secrets.
A Memento Films production, “Everybody Knows” was shot in Spain in 2017 and will have its North American premiere at the festival.
The 71st Cannes Film Festival in May was inaugurated with a screening of the movie. However, it failed to win any awards.
Films starring Timothee Chalamet and Hugh Jackman as well as Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, “A Star Is Born”, are among those on the lineup announced by organizers on Tuesday.
“Beautiful Boy” stars Chalamet and Steve Carell and will be one of several films having their world premiere at the festival.
Other world premieres include “The Front Runner” starring Jackman as former presidential candidate Gary Hart, “Life Itself” from “This Is Us” creator Dan Fogelman, the police shooting drama “The Hate U Give” and Steve McQueen’s “Widows.”
