SECRET IN THEIR EYES (2015): The Things I Liked…

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. What is one to do…?

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.

Happy Film Loving 🙂

SECRET IN THEIR EYES (2015): A Good Thriller Is On the Way, Friends. It’s On The Way

The new Billy Ray directed mystery/ thriller starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor finally has a trailer and it looks rather good, I must say.

Two of the three lead Actors have an Oscar statue at home and the third is Oscar nominated so you know it’s going to be emotional.

The trailer is intense and best enjoyed without knowing too much about the film beforehand. So…

Can’t wait to see Julia Roberts being badass.

Happy Secret In Their Eyes 🙂
