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 Blake Slayton

I have read some of the reviews about this movie, regarding a remake of a Spanish movie, and no clue that this was a remake.

For a movie I haven't heard anything about, I gave it ago based on the actors in the movie.

Pleasantly surprised at the gripping, compelling storyline. The heartbreak and suspense, as well as the thriller aspect of the movie, with that forever twist that I search for in movies. As The usual Suspects being one of my ultimate favourite movies of all time, I found that the storyline flowed well, it wasn't drawn out to the point you get bored and want to switch to another movie. Thoroughly enjoyed this movie and would recommend watching.
