This one is going to win at the Oscars. Movie heavy weights Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman team up to deliver a fast paced thriller drama called “The Secret in Their Eyes”. If sources are to be believed, Nicole Kidman replaced Gwyneth Paltrow in the movie.
In “The Secret in Their Eyes,” Julia Roberts plays an FBI agent who is having an ordinary day until she is called to a scene of murder for investigation and finds out that the victim is her own teenaged daughter. Despite the brutal nature of the murder, the man who supposedly committed the crime walks away free on a mere technicality. Julia Roberts’ character, Jess, is then devastated and vows to bring justice for her daughter. Nicole Kidman plays her boss in the movie.
The movie might try out one of the two directions. It might run like a fast-paced thriller with loads of action or it might work like a tearjerker, which might give the actors a chance to show their skills in the acting department. If it chooses to work like a thriller, audiences will be delighted to see the two tinsel town queens in a true blue action thriller. If it chooses to be an emotional drama, we might see some excellent acting from Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman. The movie promises to be exciting on all fronts for Julia Roberts’s and Nicole Kidman’s fans.
If MTV news report is to be believed, the actors have gone all out to give their best performances for the movie. What remains to be seen is whether the audiences will recognize and fall for the emotional hook of the film. There have been many, many movies built around parents who are trying to bring their child’s molester or murderer to justice. Hell, Liam Neeson has acted in about a dozen of them. What remains to be seen, is whether the ladies can put a new twist on the child-parent thriller story arc.
