Julia Roberts in Secret in Their Eyes STX Entertainment
The first trailer and pictures for Secret in Their Eyes, the English-language remake of the Oscar winning foreign language film has arrived. Directed by Billy Ray (Breach) and starring and impressive cast led by Chiwetel Ejiofor, Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman, the pic is set to release in theaters on Oct. 23.
The story centers on a retired legal counselor who writes a novel hoping to find closure for one of his past unresolved homicide cases and for his unreciprocated love with his superior – both of which still haunt him decades later.
Check out the trailer below.
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?
