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

  • [It] seems to exist only to answer the unasked question "What would "I Spit on Your Grave" have been like if the main character had been Martha Stewart?"

    Aug 14, 2015 | Rating: 0.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Mikati never settles on whether he's steering an identity crisis drama or an exploitative vengeance fantasy.

  • For most of the way, "Return to Sender" merges creepy and sexy to good effect, thanks to a close-to-the-vest performance by Rosamund Pike, the missing wife of "Gone Girl."

  • Pike phones in a reprise of her Oscar-nominated "Gone Girl" performance, complete with brittle perfection and a loose screw.

    Aug 12, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Even with the dramatic buildup, Mikati hesitates to make Return to Sender an all-out revenge fantasy, and the characters are too sketchy for an effective psychological thriller.

    Aug 12, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Rosamund Pike deserves better than this queasy exploitation pic, which plays as a belated dry run for "Gone Girl."

    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!
