Nicole Kidman carries a bag as she makes her way inside a building on set of a commercial on Wednesday (July 29) in Beverly Hills, Calif. A team of FBI investigators is torn apart when they discover that one of their own teenage daughters has been brutally murdered.
Back in 2009, a sombre, twisty Argentinian thriller called The Secret in Their Eyes pulled off a remarkable heist at the Oscars. Juan Jose Campanella’s film, a policier spanning a quarter-century about an unapprehended murderer, must have tapped into the same taste for procedural whodunnits that has made all those Scandi crime dramas such water-cooler TV. Now the Hollywood remake is upon us, and an estimable cast, headed by Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts, do their darnedest to make it fly. The most powerful scene by far is the identification of this body, which Ejiofor’s Ray is the first to get a good look at. In this one sequence she succeeds in breaking the movie wide open – it’s a gruellingly effective showcase for what a good dramatic actress she is, and makes up (at least temporarily) for the clankingly dim preamble of the preceding reel.
Thirteen years later, the presumed killer is still at large, because the cost of prosecuting him when they should have – which the powers that be prevented from happening – was potentially sacrificing leads in the war on terror. But the case against him is circumstantial at best, hinging on his general lasciviousness, his predatory expression staring at the victim in a single photo, and a fetish for comic-book violence. Kidman only has one scene that suggests why this wholly functional part appealed, when she taunts Cole’s character about his virility, trying to get a rise and a confession out of him.
The film also wastes too much energy detailing an unrequited crush Ray has on Claire, when the relationship that really counts here, and gets short shrift as a result, is the one between him and Jess.

Managing to be simultaneously underdeveloped and overwrought is a common flaw in pseudo-adult thrillers.
Secret in Their Eyes is a remake of the 2009 Argentinian Oscar-winner of almost the same name, a movie about the prolonged hunt for a killer that has one memorably disturbing moment.
Email * As we prepare to enter August and summer draws to a close, Hollywood casts aside the blockbuster sequels and remakes, reaches into its back pocket, and pulls out the cream of the crop.
It beat two far more critically acclaimed contenders – Michael Haneke’s The White Ribbon and Jacques Audiard’s A Prophet – to the Best Foreign Film award. It’s been put together by one of Hollywood’s most prolific screenwriters, Billy Ray, who penned Captain Phillips, The Hunger Games, and the film version of State of Play, as well as his self-directed thrillers Shattered Glass and Breach, both of which were pretty interesting.
Ray hasn’t nailed the structure, dug deeply enough into the characterisations, or finessed the big twist nearly well enough - that’s why. The camera tracks his gasping shock as he walks numbly across to Roberts’s character, Jess, and has to deliver the words that will ruin her life: it’s her daughter. It dents the film’s credibility badly that experienced investigators such as Ray and Claire (Nicole Kidman) assume they can just wing the case on a strong hunch: they must know how the system works. His fight to get justice for her daughter ought to be a moving essay on carrying your own share of a friend’s grief, but while Ejiofor is certainly pushing the role in that direction, the script has a more dubiously gimmicky resolution in mind. So is depending on a payload of cathartic emotion without doing the steady work of earning it. Video chats were integrated into Gmail back in 2008, but little has been done to improve the experience since then.

Thunderstruck, Roberts fights her way right next to the corpse to get confirmation of her own. Ejiofor's director doesn't coax the best out of him, either: unlike the excellent Ricardo Darin first time around, he’s mostly lunging in a vacuum. The decision was announced earlier Wednesday by the film’s distributing studio, STX Entertainment. The move is not a surprise as the company has hinted the tablet would be released around the same time as Windows 8, but it is the first time a firm date has been given to the public by Microsoft. The move is practically guaranteed to drive up ticket sales with the increased audience of Turkey Day attendees.
And if all of those credentials didn’t excite you, Secret in Their Eyes was already adapted into the 2009 Argentinian film of the same name, which went on to win the Oscar at the 82nd Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film.
Semiocast collected data from 517 million Twitter profiles and has determined that the United States has by far the most Twitter users of any country with more than 140 million users. Like we said, #OscarSeason.The plot centers around FBI investigator Ray (Ejiofor) who finds the teenage daughter of his partner Jess (Roberts) murdered in a brutal crime. The pair teams with the District Attorney, Claire (Kidman), to bring the murderer to justice.
