Academy Award winning Best Foreign Language Film adapted in 2015's “SECRET IN THEIR EYES”


ACADEMY AWARD WINNING BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM ADAPTED IN 2015’S “SECRET IN THEIR EYES”

Academy Award winner Julia Roberts stars in her latest and another yet Oscar-worthy role in the crime thriller “Secret In Their Eyes” based on the 2010 Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film directed by Juan Jose Campanella “El Secreto de Sus Ojos.”

This year’s “Secret In Their Eyes,” directed by blockbuster filmmaker and Academy Award nominee Billy Ray (“Captain Phillips,” “The Hunger Games”), and produced by Academy Award and Emmy winner Mark Johnson (“Rain Man,” “Breaking Bad”) brings Julia Roberts in a surprising mystery that explores the personal themes of loss, betrayal, and a parent’s undying will to right a profound wrong.

DA investigator Jess Cobb (Julia Roberts), FBI investigator Ray Kasten (Chiwetel Ejiofor), and Deputy District Attorney Claire Sloan (Nicole Kidman) are rising stars, having been selected to serve on an anti-terrorism joint task force in post 9/11 Los Angeles. Jess and Ray are tight-knit partners who share a deep respect and an easy friendship both on the job and off. Ray and Claire come from opposite walks of life, but have a complicated attraction that is a constant undercurrent in their day-to-day encounters. After Ray and Jess are called to investigate a murder scene, they discover the unthinkable -- the victim is Jess’s daughter, Caroline. Ray and Jess join forces with Claire to bring the killer to justice. Their mission, however, meets a cold reality when they discover their suspect is a protected federal witness, and is set free. Thirteen years later, despite their attempts to find an even keel to their lives, Ray, Claire and Jess still bear wounds that won’t heal. But when Ray uncovers a new lead, he returns to L.A. to convince Claire to revisit the case. Despite the risk all face by reopening emotional issues — Jess’ life has been in stasis for more than a decade; Ray’s affection for Claire has never waned — they join forces to pursue the killer: this time vowing to take matters into their own hands to avenge Caroline’s brutal murder. None, however, is prepared for the shocking secret that lurks behind the manhunt and illuminates the emotional cost of vengeance and justice.

Billy Ray and Mark Johnson had known each other and each other’s work for decades, but had never worked together. When they saw the Argentine thriller “El Secreto de Sus Ojos,” neither of them could stop talking about it. “El Secreto de Sus Ojos, is spectacular,” says Billy, “I was completely floored by it, had a reverence for it that bordered on awe. Then Mark asked me if I wanted to adapt it. At first I was hesitant because you don’t want to take on anything that is so great that you feel dwarfed by it before you even start. But I did feel there was an American version of the story worth retelling and exploring.” Every time the pair got frustrated tackling the weighty subject matter, they had an unabashed cheerleader in Juan Campanella, who directed the Argentine film. “Here was a man who wanted to solve a cold case but the reason why he wanted to solve it was not only to find the culprit but to find the root of his own loneliness,” Campanella says. “That to me was very original. Contrary to what people might think, I really like it when somebody takes a piece of work and turns it into something different.” Billy says an impetus for the American version lay in the events of 9/11. ”The horror of that event was so big and so indelible for anybody who was in America at that time. But it created a story opportunity for our movie that no other context could have.” “Billy found a great twist on the story,” Campanella says. “He respected a lot of the emotion of the original but found a very American way of telling it.” Billy admits that he initially thought he was writing a movie about loss. “But it turns out that I was writing a movie about obsession. Stories do that sometimes, they tell you what they are about.






“Secret In Their Eyes” opens December 2 in theatres nationwide from Axinite Digicinema.

“Secret In Their Eyes” a remake of the 2009 Oscar-winning Argentinian film of the same name, is written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Billy Ray (“Captain Phillips,” “The Hunger Games”), and produced by Academy Award® winner Mark Johnson (“Rain Man,” “Breaking Bad”), “Secret In Their Eyes” is an intense, powerful and haunting story of a tight-knit team of rising FBI investigators.

“SECRET IN THEIR EYES” powerhouse cast: Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman first movie together


“SECRET IN THEIR EYES” POWERHOUSE CAST: JULIA ROBERTS AND NICOLE KIDMAN FIRST MOVIE TOGETHER

Award winning and Hollywood’s leading actresses Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman team up in a movie for the first time ever in the highly anticipated thrilling movie of the year “Secret in Their Eyes” along with Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (“12 Years A Slave”).

In the hair-raising dramatic thriller directed and written by Academy Award nominee Billy Ray, “Secret in Their Eyes” sees former FBI agent Ray (Ejiofor) haunted by the murder of the daughter of his good friend and former partner Cobb (Roberts) - a case left unsolved for the past 12 years. At the time, Ray and Cobb apprehended a suspect, Marzin, who was an informant during a counter–terrorism investigation while the nation was gripped by fear. Due to his importance in that plot and the fact that his confession was extracted under questionable means, Marzin was eventually released and Ray lost sight of him…until now. Ray returns to Boston and must confront 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 the Academy-Award winning Argentinian 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.

As revealed in the trailer that was recently launched this year, “Secret in Their Eyes” gives the audience a glimpse of a heartbreaking and disturbing scene where a mother’s worst fear had been unveiled who discovered that her daughter had been murdered and was left in the dump. “It was just one of those scenes. You knew it was part of the reason Julia was doing the movie and yet it was something she was really dreading,” explains writer-director Ray, who earned an Oscar nomination for the Captain Phillips screenplay. “She was going to have to go to a place that was going to be very painful.”

Says Ray in recent interviews, “It’s also the first movie that has co-starred Oscar winners Roberts and Kidman. “You always want big stars as long as they're great actors. In the case of Julia and Nicole, you get both. And 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 very soon in local (Phils.) theaters from Axinite Digicinema.

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?

Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time?

When will my reflection show...who I am inside?
