Yahoo Movies! released the first trailer for writer/director Billy Ray’s upcoming intense, powerful, haunting thriller ‘Secret in Their Eyes,’ a remake of the Oscar winning Argentinian film of the same name. Directed by Billy Ray (Breach) and starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman.
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?
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”).
Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts.
