2002: Ray Kasten (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Jess Cobb (Julia Roberts) are two investigators 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, dissatisfied 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.Written by
In the first scene when you see the body in the dumpster it is laying on a bunch of trash but in the next scene when she climbs into the dumpster, the body is laying on the bottom with no trash. See more »
"Secret in Their Eyes" is a dark remake of the excellent Oscar winner "El secreto de sus ojos" (2009). The story of the Argentinian-Spanish film is magnificent and the cast of "Secret in Their Eyes" is top-notch. Despite the confused screenplay, the result is a film not comparable to the original but worthwhile watching. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Olhos da Justiça" ("Eyes of the Justice")
