A collaboration between Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts is something that could only happen in a gay boy’s dreams, but these dreams have become a reality thanks to writer-director Billy Ray and his upcoming thriller Secret in Their Eyes. See the synopsis and trailer for this upcoming epic team-up of the holy screen queens below:
A tight-knit team of rising investigators – Ray and Jess, along with their supervisor Claire – is suddenly torn apart when they discover that Jess’s teenage daughter has been brutally and inexplicably murdered. Now, thirteen years later, after obsessively searching every day for the elusive killer, Ray finally uncovers a new lead that he’s certain can permanently resolve the case, nail the vicious murderer, and bring long-desired closure to his team. No one is prepared, however, for the shocking, unspeakable secret that will reveal the enduring, destructive effects of personal vengeance on the human soul. Interweaving past and present, this deeply layered mystery explores the murky boundaries between justice and revenge, and asks the question: how far would you go to right an unfathomable wrong?
We can’t help get over the nineties revenge-thriller vibe of the trailer, but that’s quite a good thing in our eyes. Who doesn’t want to see Julia and Nicole team-up with Chitwel Ejiofor to take on some criminal scum?
Secret in Their Eyes is out in the US on November 20th and it the UK on the 4th of March (which is a damn travesty).
