(JTA) - When Israeli director Yuval Adler saw the script for "The Secrets We Keep," a thriller about a woman who kidnaps a man she believes was her Nazi torturer during World War II, he knew he wanted to make some changes.
The story revolved around a Jewish woman who endured horrors at a German concentration camp - a plot Adler found a little stale. He started talking to the lead actress, Noomi Rapace, known for her starring role in the original Swedish "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" films, about her personal life to see if they could freshen it up with details from her own story.
