Award-winning and Hollywood power women Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman are finally appearing in their first movie together in the highly anticipated thriller, Secret in Their Eyes. Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave) is also part of the top-notch cast.
The suspense drama—directed and written by Academy Award nominee Billy Ray—sees former FBI agent Ray (Ejiofor) haunted by the murder of the daughter of good friend and former partner Cobb (Roberts), a case, which has been left unsolved for 12 years. At the time, Ray and Cobb apprehended a suspect, Marzin, who was eventually released since his confession was extracted under questionable means.
Years later, Ray returns to Boston and confronts his past, including Claire (Kidman), with whom he had a working relationship and unrequited love. As Ray inches closer to solving the crime, he uncovers a shocking truth that will shed a terrifying new light on past events.
Based on an Academy Award-winning Argentinean film, acclaimed filmmaker Billy Ray is set to deliver a sophisticated crime thriller that explores what people pushed to their limits can hide in the dark corners of the human heart.
“Secret in Their Eyes is the first movie that has co-starred Oscar winners Roberts and Kidman, and you always want big stars as long as they’re great actors. In the case of Julia and Nicole, you get both. It was a sight to witness the two powerhouse actresses play off of each other. There was enormous respect, great camaraderie, and, in my opinion—I don’t know if either of them would ever admit to it—there was a very healthy, kind of athletic level of competitiveness. They both had such regard for each other and they both wanted to do their best because the other was in the movie.”
Secret in Their Eyes opens in Philippine theaters in November from Axinite Digicinema.
