Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Billy Ray (Captain Phillips,The Hunger Games), and produced by Academy Award® winner Mark Johnson (Rain Man, “Breaking Bad”), Secret In Their Eyes is an intense, powerful, haunting thriller starring Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Academy Award® winners Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts.

A tight-knit team of rising FBI investigators – Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Jess (Julia Roberts), along with their District Attorney supervisor Claire (Nicole Kidman) – is 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?

Oh, it started shooting.

I loved both of Billy Ray's previous films, but he's got a lot to live up to with this, including one of the most fun continuous shots ever. We'll see, I guess.

The people involved in this give me hope. However, this wasn't necessary. Though I should expect that most of the foreign films that are not heavily grounded in their foreign culture/history and are not original projects will get remade for Hollywood.

This looks like Let Me In compared to Let The Right One In, very good until you see the original.

Hmm. Looks like they're gonna try and match the stadium scene.

Good luck.

It's a really insane scene in the original. It's one of those which leave you wondering on how exactly they pulled it off.

Ugh this makes me feel bad. El Secreto de sus Ojos was a terrific film, this looks sloppy.

So apparently this isn't being well received at all unfortunately...
