'Secret in Their Eyes' Review

When I interviewed Billy Ray for my book Filmcraft: Screenwriting, I was enormously impressed with his work ethic, his competitive fire and the fact that he's a longtime baseball fan. So it pains me to say that his latest film, a remake of the Oscar-winning The Secret in Their Eyes, is a bit of a misfire. The "The" is missing from the title of the remake, but that's not all that's lacking from the original, unfortunately. My review is up at Screen International.
