A tight-knit team of FBI investigators, along with their District Attorney supervisor, is suddenly torn apart when they discover that one of their own teenage daughters has been brutally murdered.
Remake Of A Masterpiece
Secret in their Eyes is a remake of the 2009 Argentinian thriller El secreto de sus ojos. That, is a damn near perfect film. It's in my Top 20 of all times and for good reason. The performances and script are second to none. If you haven't seen it yet, I implore you to go and watch it now.
The American version was pretty much a given considering Hollywood loves to churn out recycled product. I immediately had my reservations and while this film is not horrendous, it simply pales in comparison to the original source material. I did like the cast chosen for this version, but it lacks so much of the emotional depth and pacing of its Argentinian original.
