Storyline

2002: Ray Kasten (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Jess Cooper (Julia Roberts) are two investigations in a private police unit led by the DA. When they receive an anonymous tip about a girl raped and killed, they rush to the scene. Ray realizes it is Jess' daughter and the team falls apart due to the grief. In 2015, Ray comes back to LA, and says that after 13 years, he has found a lead and convinces the DA to reopen the case. They find clues and leads unknown to them, and secrets from the past come to light as they start discovering the real, chilling truth. Meanwhile, Jess, unsatisfied with the law, decides to take matters into her own hands and track down the killer, no matter what lengths she has to go to.

Trivia

This is the first collaboration between the two actresses Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman. Both actresses have been working since the 1980's, both won their Academy Award in the early 00's, and both have been among the highest paid actresses in the movie industry. According to the director 'Billy Ray' there was a healthy working relationship between the two; "There was enormous respect, great camaraderie, and, in my opinion - I don't know if either of them would ever admit to it - there was a very healthy, kind of athletic level of competitiveness. They both had such regard for each other and they both wanted to do their best because the other was in the movie." See more »

Above average whodunit flick.
26 November 2015 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Back in 2010, Argentinian thriller El Secreto de Sus Ojos beat out Michael Haneke's brilliant The White Ribbon and French gem A Prophet for the Best Foreign Film Academy Award. That's how damn impressive it is. So it's not surprising that it eventually was given the Hollywood makeover. The question is does this star-studded, LA-based remake separate itself from the original and carve out its own place in the crowded crime genre? Sort of, but not really. But kind of. The backdrop has adjusted from Argentina's Dirty Wars to the more familiar War on Terror, planting this update into a messy and uneasy political landscape that creates a suitably tense and morally ambiguous atmosphere for the movie. The details of the grisly case at the film's core have gone relatively unchanged though, which is a shame for those who've seen the original, but should rivet newcomers with its gut-punching twists that span a 13-year time period. As the tormented investigator with a personal link to the victim, Chiwetel Ejiofor owns every second of screen time he's given with his commanding presence, whilst Julia Roberts is emotionally raw as the grieving mother with FBI resources at her disposal. Unfortunately Nicole Kidman drops the ball as the cautious but realistic State's attorney who holds a flame for ex-co-worker Ejiofor, never fully convincing in a steely role that requires more grit than what Kidman can produce. Shot and scored with the sombre mood you would expect, and wisely kept to a taut sub-two-hour runtime, Secret in Their Eyes fails to better (or even match) its forerunner yet elevates itself above the standard whodunit fare with two powerhouse performances and an absorbing central murder case.
