Movie Info

Miranda (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl) is a dedicated nurse, an exquisite cake maker and an impeccable friend. But when she agrees to a blind date and the wrong man comes to her door...her perfect world is shattered by a brutal assault. Even after her attacker, William (Shiloh Fernandez, Evil Dead), is convicted and locked away for the crime, Miranda can't overcome the fear and trauma enough to put her orderly life back together. Desperate for closure, she reaches out to William - first through letters, then prison visits - and slowly builds a relationship with him. But when William is paroled and comes looking for her, Miranda seizes the opportunity to exact revenge. (C) RLJE/Image Entertainment

  • Despite its occasional missteps, this hybrid of Gone Girl and Misery is bizarrely compelling.

    August 16, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Even Rosamund Pike is recycling her performance, and she knows it; it's simply a Gone Girl rip off that will lose even the most forgiving viewer in the third act.

    May 10, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • There is nothing that can save it, not even the star quality of Rosamund Pike herself. If only Return to Sender could itself be sent right back to the studio from whence it came.

  • Return to Sender is an equally repulsive and dreadful movie that deserves to be more than spoiled -- it should be murdered, buried, and never discussed again.

    February 24, 2016 | Rating: F | Full Review…
  • The audience, though, will surely guess the twist which is coming.

  • Whilst there's probably not enough story here to warrant the film's admittedly short running time, when it reaches its heightened emotional ending, you have to hand it to screenwriters Patricia Beauchamp and Joe Gossett for trying something different.

    The concept for this film is a little bazaar. All the acting outside of Pike's character is pretty bad. The film is even boring at times and has some unnecessary and unexplained elements.

    I enjoyed this. If you enjoyed Gone Girl then this will be right up your street. A great performance from Rosamund Pike that leaves you a lot to think about when it's over.

    A darkly tempting movie, with Rosamund Pike drawing you in. But in the end you might want to return the dvd!
