Secret in Their Eyes star Julia Roberts sat down with Yahoo SuperFan to break down one of the film’s most intense scenes.
When Roberts’s character, Jess, discovers that a dead body her team is investigating is actually that of her daughter, she unleashes an explosion of emotion. It’s a performance that will sit with you long after the movie is over.
Roberts said it was a long day of filming in an underground parking garage. And she described letting co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor set the pace of the scene, describing them as marathon runners, till his character broke the horrible news to Jess. Roberts said, “From there, I tried to construct something true and unthinkably emotional.”
Secret in Their Eyes opens nationwide this Friday, Nov. 20.
