Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, And A 13 Year Old Murder Mystery

This. Is. Intense. 

Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, and Chiwetel Ejiofor bring their A game to this movie, titled The Secret In Their Eyes. Especially with the caliber of the actors on board. Between these three, and (Netflixer squeal) Doug Stamper from House of Cards (Michael Kelly), this trailer is already thrilling enough.

The story follows police detectives, and they arrive at a crime scene in which Chewetel Ejiofor discovers Julia Roberts’s daughter is the victim. They get the suspect and deem him guilty, but can’t find probable cause to hold him, so he walks. 

Chewetel’s character then spends the next 13 years trying to find the killer in the crime database, locates him, tells Julia, and she determines that she can’t watch him walk away again, so she’s going to take matters into her own hands. Julia Roberts, a Mom of a murdered daughter looking for revenge? Oh yeah, this is going to be more insane then Julia in Erin Brockovich

See for yourself, prepare for the chills:
