(2015) (Chiwetel Ejiofor, Julia Roberts) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramatic Thriller: A former FBI agent won't give up his search to find the man who raped and murdered his colleague's young adult daughter thirteen years ago.
- It's the present day and former FBI agent Ray Kasten (CHIWETEL EJIOFOR) has arrived in the office of Los Angeles District Attorney Claire Sloan (NICOLE KIDMAN) with the belief that he's finally found the killer of Carolyn Cobb (ZOE GRAHAM), the young adult daughter of his former coworker and friend, Jess (JULIA ROBERTS), who still works in the D.A. office. Ray believes the perp is stable worker Beckwith (JOE COLE) who looks similar to the original suspect, but Claire isn't sure about reopening the case, especially since thirteen years have passed since the crime was committed.
Back then, Ray and Claire were transplants to Los Angeles where they were assigned to work on a post 9/11 counter-terrorism team run by then District Attorney Martin Morales (ALFRED MOLINA). When Carolyn's body was found in a dumpster next to the mosque they were scoping out, Ray and coworker Bumpy (DEAN NORRIS) set out to find the killer, eventually figuring out it was likely Marzin (JOE COLE). What they didn't know, however, is that he was an informant for another coworker, Reggie (MICHAEL KELLY), and thus any investigation of him in the rape and murder could ruin the potential for collecting intel on suspected terrorists in the mosque.
As the film jumps back and forth between the two times, Ray does what he can to solve the case, eventually becoming so obsessed with doing so that he threatens the counter-terrorism efforts as well as his working relationship with all of those involved.
