Chiwetel Ejiofor’s latest movie is a tense, hard-boiled affair, a three-handed crime and revenge story that puts him alongside Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman in a tale of bitter injustice and moral uncertainty.
Secret in their Eyes is the story of a close-knit team of FBI investigators whose professional detachment and seen-it-all demeanor is shattered by a savage murder that strikes far too close to home.
The subsequent investigation and the emotional aftermath is enough to tear their respective worlds apart, but that’s not where the story ends; not by a long shot:
The film was written and directed by Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, The Hunger Games), based on the Academy Award-winning Argentinian film The Secret in their Eyes from 2009. It should be in theaters in October 2015.
