Plot – Spoilers:
A retired Argentinian judicial officer Esposito looks back on a case from a couple decades back that he felt personally connected to – the murder of a young woman. Esposito has unresolved issues from the case and decides to revisit it by writing a book on it.
Secret in Their Eyes dwells on loss – specifically love. So you have the husband of the murder victim, and Esposito’s lost opportunity with a colleague. From an effedup pov, the latter tends to get in the way of the actual murder case, but some great scenes during the investigation make up for these sidesteps.
