‘The Secrets We Keep’ Trailer: Noomi Rapace Kidnaps and Tortures Joel Kinnaman as Payback

Bleecker Street

Take a look at the trailer that’s arrived for The Secrets We Keep, an upcoming post-WWII thriller starring Noomi Rapace and Joel Kinnaman.

The film has Rapace playing a woman who kidnaps a man (Kinnaman) she believes to be a ruthless Nazi who committed horrific crimes against her and her family. Her husband (Chris Messina) finds himself caught in between wanting to support his wife and having doubts about her recollections.

Directed and co-written by Israeli filmmaker Yuval Adler (Bethlehem, The Operative), the film looks like a tense-as-hell outing with Rapace and Kinnaman – who really should be leading more big films these days – putting in what appear to be all-in performances. The film’s plot seems to be quite similar to Roman Polanski’s 1994 film Death and the Maiden, which had Sigourney Weaver convinced that Ben Kingsley had tortured her for weeks while she was blindfolded.

Looking forward to this one. The Secrets We Keep, also starring Amy Seimetz and Lucy Faust, hits limited US cinemas on September 16 and hits VOD on October 16.

Official synopsis for The Secrets We Keep:

In post-WWII America, a woman (Noomi Rapace), rebuilding her life in the suburbs with her husband (Chris Messina), kidnaps her neighbor (Joel Kinnaman) and seeks vengeance for the heinous war crimes she believes he committed against her. Directed by Yuval Adler from a script by Ryan Covington and Yuval Adler.
