What is Everybody Knows age rating?
The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) gives Everybody Knows a 15 age rating.
This means no one younger than 15 may see a 15 film in a cinema.
The BBFC cits strong language as its reason behind the rating.
There are also milder terms, but bear in mind they are in Spanish with English subtitles.
There is also moderate threat associated with a kidnapping.
In America, the thriller, whose original Spanish title is Todos lo Saben, the movie is rated R.
R ratings mean anyone under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
The plot synopsis of Everybody Knows reads: “Laura and her two children travel from Argentina to Spain to attend her sister’s wedding.
“The joyful reunion soon turns tragic when her older daughter gets kidnapped — revealing a dark web of hidden secrets.”
Written and directed by Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, Everybody Knows is a French-Spanish-Italian co-production.
The movie will play in the UK with English subtitles for those who do not speak Spanish.

Everybody Knows has a 75 per cent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Reviews, however, are overall more positive in tone than the consensus reads.
