Secret in Their Eyes - Movie Synopsis & Plot

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?

MOVIE REVIEW

It’s hard to get into a movie when you know how it ends. Secret in Their Eyes is a remake of the 2009 Argentinian Oscar-winner of almost the same name, a movie about the prolonged hunt for a killer that has one memorably disturbing moment. It’s also a movie that I called “one of the best movies of the decade.”
