Entertainment Weekly | 'Secret in Their Eyes' Review


Revenge is a dish served room temperature-ish in this faithful but oddly flattened remake of the Oscar-winning 2009 Argentinian noir of the same name. It’s not for lack of stars; Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, and Chiwetel Ejiofor work hard to make the story their own. Roberts is especially vivid, though most of the attention will probably land on her brutal physical makeunder: Every last vestige of the superstar’s toothy sparkle is subsumed onscreen by muddy contact lenses, a shapeless wardrobe, and sallow, pain-etched pallor.

The story is too old to be commented.
