Return to Sender: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Fresh off her role in Gone Girl which earned her an Oscar nomination, Rosamund Pike is back in thriller film, Return to Sender together with Shiloh Fernandez and Nick Nolt. We are intrigued with film's premise and quite excited on what will Rosamund Pike do next. Will she surprise us again or are we going to be disappointed this time around?

Miranda (Rosamund Pike) is a small-town nurse who is brutally raped inside her house by her supposedly blind date. Her assailant, William, (Shiloh Fernandez) is caught and was put into custody. As Miranda struggles to get her life back, she decided to send him some letters but all of it was returned to her unopened. She also starts on visiting him in prison and tries to befriend him despite all the things went between them. With her motives unclear will Miranda take the risk and start over again or will she have a secret plan beyond her kind gesture?

The film escalated quickly, and we thought that it would have a great outcome. We actually had high hopes even the film got early negative reviews from the critics. We are expecting for Rosamund Pike to steal the show again, but even she did manage to bring out a lot to her character; the plot is just simply acted as an anchor that dragged her down. It is misleading and it may have tricked some people, but it wasn't good enough, which may leave you scratching your head afterwards.

Overall, Return to Sender is a complete turnaround for Rosamund Pike. Even though she did carry a lot of load for the film it still turned out as a mess.

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 4.5 out of 10
