Return To Sender Review

Image for Return To Sender

A small town nurse (Rosamund Pike) gets sexually assaulted on a blind date and deals with it in an unusual way.

★★★★★

Pike’s Miranda is an ambitious OCD nurse, close to her dad (Nolte), good at cake decorating and reluctant in love. When she finally agrees to go on a blind date, her suitor sexually assaults her, almost leaving her for dead.

Mikati’s curio of a film begins as a sincere look at a woman rebuilding her life after rape. But when Miranda starts corresponding with, then visiting her attacker (a shifty Fernandez) in prison, it moves into an uneasy relationship drama. Mikati fumbles the changes in tone, and all the patient character work doesn’t make you care any deeper come the tricksy ending.
