Secret in Their Eyes

Released 2016 Rating 15 in UK
Director Billy Ray Writer/s Billy Ray
Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Dean Norris
Source of story A 2009 Argentinian film of the same name.
Elevator Pitch A former FBI officer returns to Los Angeles to tell his former colleagues that he has found the identity of a man who murdered the daughter of one thirteen years earlier. The mother, now a senior investigator and the other now the DA, and for whom the FBI man has a flame burning, struggle with the new information as we are flashed back to the original event.
Content Off centre view of a murder, lots of staring into the middle distance as the actors attempt to communicate pain and distress.
A View The Argentinian film won prizes, this one nothing but a bit of sympathy for the actors, particularly Julia Roberts who has shed her glamourous image for the role. When this was written – 2016 – you would have to pay to watch this. Probably best to give it a miss.
