Hollywood has remade Juan José Campanella’s superb 2010 movie El Secreto de sus Ojos (which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film). It stars Julia Roberts as an FBI investigator whose teenage daughter is found dead in a dumpster (“bleached inside and out”)(whatever that means). Nicole Kidman is the district attorney who can’t build a strong enough case against the primary suspect, so Chiwetel Ejiofor (Robert’s co-worker and best friend) then goes on an obsessive 13-year manhunt for him. Just when they think they’ve found him and can reopen the case, Julia goes all bananas on the guy to exact “justice” (read: revenge). Watch the Trailer below. (via Vulture)
The Secret in Their Eyes opens October 23.
