They say the best secrets are hidden in plain sight, especially when it comes to crimes of passion. Enter the world of the FBI and its fight against terrorism. We meet a tight knit group of agents who are determined to get the job done and seem quite good at it, until tragedy strikes one of their own, Jessica “Jess” Cobb’s (Julia Roberts) daughter, Carolyn, is raped and murdered by an FBI informant. Determined to get justice for Carolyn and revenge for her mother, Ray Caston, (Chiwetel Ejiofor) makes it his mission to bring her killer to justice even if it means going against the Bureau! The lengths, depths, and danger this agent goes through will make you question everything you think you know about this story.
This has to be one of the best films I have seen in a long time. Although it builds up slowly, it soon takes us on an emotional roller coaster for the ages. You can definitely attribute the awesomeness of this film to its three main stars. Julia, Chiwetel, and Nicole Kidman (Claire) have amazing chemistry and energy. The way their characters play off each other truly blurs the lines between doing what is right and remaining loyal to a dear friend. Be sure you catch this amazing film in theaters everywhere TODAY!
