Iranian Oscar-winning master filmmaker Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) takes on the kidnapping genre and brings it back to a human emotional level. Through this film he explores how extreme stress brings out long buried secrets and resentments. The film stars real-life couple Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem playing former lovers.

When Laura returns from Argentina with her young daughter and small son to attend her sister’s wedding in the rural Spanish village where she grew up, she’s greeted by both her large family and her old boyfriend Paco, who now runs the vineyard that once belonged to her family. The festivities commence as old flirtations resurface, but the jubilee is cut short when it is discovered that Laura’s daughter is kidnapped. With Paco by her side every step of the way, Laura must contend with a resurgence of family secrets long thought buried as she races to find her daughter before it’s too late.

“An immensely watchable and thematically complex tale, which in some ways plays out like an Agatha Christie-style whodunit.”
