There’s a pretty talented bunch behind this Friday’s dramatic crime thriller Secret in Their Eyes. The film (itself a remake of Juan José Campanella’s 2009 Academy Award-winning Best Foreign Language Film), features a cast headlined by Academy Award winners Julia Roberts (Erin Brockovich), Nicole Kidman (The Hours), and Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) with Academy Award nominee Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) both writing and directing.

From STX EntertainmentSecret in Their Eyes follows FBI investigator Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) after he finds the teenage daughter of his partner, Jess (Julia Roberts), murdered in a brutal crime. They team with the District Attorney, Claire (Nicole Kidman), and make it their crusade to bring the murderer to justice. Their passion meets cold reality, however, when they realize the murderer is a protected witness in an ongoing terror investigation – they can only watch as he walks free.

After searching every day for 13 years, they uncover a surprising new lead that takes them on an intense pursuit of the elusive killer. No one is prepared, however, for the shocking, unspeakable secret that will reveal the enduring, destructive effects of grief and vengeance on the human soul. Interweaving past and present, Secret In Their Eyes aims to deliver a deeply layered mystery that explores the boundaries of justice, and to ask the question, “How far would you go to right an unfathomable wrong?”

ComingSoon.net had the opportunity to sit down with stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Julia Roberts as well writer and director Billy Ray. In the player below, you can watch the trio discuss some of the challenges of bringing such an intense and expansive story to life.
