Storyline

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

Goofs

In 2002 they drive a BMW E60 which, by the looks of it, seems to be newer than the LCI 2007. Also, in a scene of the car's interior, it has the electronic gearbox, which was introduced with this LCI. See more »

Quotes

Ray Kasten: [about his ex-wife] She was great, actually. She was kind of a saint. There was just one thing about her that neither one of us could fix.
Claire Sloane: What was that?
Ray Kasten: She wasn't you.

Quite a Good Secret
5 December 2015 | by girvanpatersonSee all my reviews

Having read all the negative and Luke warm reviews, it was with some trepidation that I we went to see this film, now I haven't seen the Argentine original, but I did enjoy this one! Kept my interest the whole time, all the leads were strong and believable, never a big Julia Roberts fan, she was outstanding in this, I certainly don't agree with the reviewers that said Nicole Kidman was miscast, I thought she was excellent, you don't get to be an A grade Academy Award winner by being a bad actress! Perhaps it's not as good as the original are they ever? But it stands on it's own, and would be in my top ten for this year ,not that it has a lot to beat? Far as I could tell, everyone in the theater enjoyed it! Hey! It's a movie, not brain surgery!
