The film, which is a remake of the 2009 Oscar winning Argentine film of the same name, puts Julia Roberts alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor and Nicole Kidman.

In the upcoming remake, writer and director Billy Ray made a few changes to the original story for the American adaptaion. Julia’s role takes the place of the lead male character and the loss of the wife, became the loss of a daughter.

The Pretty Woman star sat down recently to talk about Secret In Their Eyes, the remake, her role and working with the movie’s cinematographer – her husband Daniel Moder.

The multiple award winning actress could be up for yet another nomination this season, for her role as Jess in the Billy Ray directed film. The scene in the official trailer when her character finds out the body in the dumpster is her own daughter, is reason enough to think her name could be on the list.

With so many great romantic comedies and dramas under her belt over the years, it’s good to see her back in the kind of role that made Sleeping With The Enemy a classic.

Secret In Their Eyes – Trailer

Official Synopsis:

A tight-knit team of rising FBI investigators – Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Jess (Julia Roberts), along with their District Attorney supervisor Claire (Nicole Kidman) – 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?

Secret In Their Eyes opens in theaters November 20th, 2015.
