The trailer for The Secret in Their Eyes is one of the most intense trailers I've seen in a long time. It follows Julia Roberts' character Jess suffering a terrible loss at the hands of a criminal and afterwards she decides to go outside of the law in order to receive justice. The Secret in Their Eyes looks like it could be one of the best revenge thrillers to come out this year.
The narrative of this film is what intrigues me the most. I can't remember the last time I've seen Julia Roberts take on a role that's even tangentially related to a role like this. As I was watching the trailer I assumed that the film wasn't going to include a revenge plot but once that moment appeared I was hooked.
Honestly, I feel like I'll enjoy this film because it looks like it'll show us a side of Julia Roberts' acting that we have yet to see. I'm used to seeing her as the female lead in a rom-com and this trailer/film flips that expectation. I can't wait to see where the film goes when it's finally released .
The Secret in Their Eyes comes out on October 23rd, 2015
