Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor and Academy Award® winners Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts star in this intense, haunting thriller that explores the murky boundaries between justice and revenge. A tight-knit team of rising investigators – Ray (Ejiofor), Jess (Roberts) and their supervisor Claire (Kidman) – is torn apart when Jess’s teenage daughter is brutally and inexplicably murdered. After obsessively searching for the elusive killer every day for 13 years, Ray finally uncovers a new lead that he’s certain will resolve the case. No one is prepared, however, for the shocking secret that will reveal the enduring, destructive effects of personal vengeance on the human soul.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Secret in Their Eyes wastes its incredible cast on a remake that fails to improve upon -- or even make a compelling case for its own existence in addition to -- the remarkable original.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Secret in Their Eyes is a thriller about a very personal murder; it's a remake of the same-named 2010 Best Foreign Language Oscar winner, and both films were based on a novel by Eduardo Sacheri. There's violent imagery, including a dead body and some chasing, beating, and intense fighting, with a little blood shown. Guns are used, and characters die. Characters flirt, and there's some strong sexual innuendo and imagery that objectifies women. Language includes one use of "f--k," plus "s--t," "bitch," and more. The film has some big stars -- including Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman -- but it's not very engaging, and younger teens probably won't be interested.
