Soon after Laura (Penélope Cruz) arrives from Argentina for a wedding at her family’s estate in Spain, her rebellious teenage daughter is kidnapped in the dead of night. Desperate, Laura turns to old flame and family vineyard keeper Paco (Javier Bardem) and a tightly wound game of whodunit plays out on the estate. Working within the suspenseful trappings of an arthouse soap opera, revered Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi explores his trademark concerns of class tension, family secrets and domestic angst, while Cruz and Bardem, at the top of their game, are pushed to emotional extremes.
