STX Entertainment released the poster for “Secret in Their Eyes,” a feature film remake of the 2009 Argentine crime thriller. This intense, powerful and haunting thriller stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts. I know, right? Amazing cast.
Written and directed by Billy Ray (“Captain Phillips,” “The Hunger Games”), and produced by Mark Johnson (“Rain Man,” “Breaking Bad”), the story follows a tight-knit team of rising investigators – Ray (Ejiofor) and Jess (Roberts), along with their supervisor Claire (Kidman) – who are suddenly torn apart when they discover that Jess’s teenage daughter has been brutally and inexplicably murdered.
Now, thirteen years later, after obsessively searching every day for the elusive killer, Ray finally uncovers a new lead that he’s certain can permanently resolve the case, nail the vicious murderer, and bring long-desired closure to his team. No one is prepared, however, for the shocking, unspeakable secret that will reveal the enduring, destructive effects of personal vengeance on the human soul.
Interweaving past and present, this deeply layered mystery explores the murky boundaries between justice and revenge, and asks the question: how far would you go to right an unfathomable wrong?
I love a good crime thriller and can’t wait to see this movie. It opens in theaters Nov. 20, 2015.
