Naomi Watts, Jacob Tremblay, Sarah Silverman and Jaeden Lieberher are the stars of The Book Of Henry, the Colin Trevorrow directed movie about a single mother raising a genius child. But wait. There’s more…
I’m intrigued because of the genius child and seemingly regular mother dynamiC. I also can’t wait for the police commissioner to get what’s coming to him.
Directed by Billy Ray; Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Alfred Molina are the stars of Secret In Their Eyes. A story about a group of FBI Investigators; a close-knit team for whom everything changes when they learn the identity of the victim of their new murder case.
Ray’s movie follows the events and decisions that end up leading to a surprising, yet understandable conclusion, the revelation of which is a key highlight.
Seeing evidence of the depth of the friendships between the main protagonists – before, during and after the central crime, that is the thing I enjoyed most about Secret In Their Eyes . One more great moment would have been when the audience learns of the victim’s identity. But…! that little nugget was unfortunately given away for free in the film’s trailer.
Secret In Their Eyes could have been a better movie . The cast performed well but I think they were let down by post production, namely what felt like an awkward overuse of flashback and the trailer edit.
