Storyline

Charlotte Cory is a young woman convict on Death Row who has built up a friendship with Frank Nitzche through mail correspondence, whilst her attorney desperately tries to appeal the verdict before Charlotte's time runs out. With only days to spare Frank realizes that he has fallen in love with Charlotte and discovers that there is much more to the tragic circumstances of her imprisonment than he first thought - her life is now in his hands. Frank races to solve the puzzle that will reveal the truth, and tell the secrets that both he and Charlotte have been concealing, before it's too late. Written by Andrew Brown

A powerful film!
14 June 2019 | by nadinesalakovvSee all my reviews

Iv'e never heard of this film until today when I saw it on a recommendations section on Amazon Prime. "Convicted"/"Return to Sender" is a powerful film, it does however look like a TV Movie, I don't know if it's because maybe it was low-budget or if it's because of the setting and scenery, but regardless this film has very good performances, however this movie IS slow-paced. The story line is powerful, as a Brit I love the southern accents, the plot is kept ambiguous until the end, I'm usually good at spotting predictable movie plots - but I honestly didn't know where they were going with this film until the plot-twist reveal.

Due to the sensitive story line, this flick is only worth watching once, it is not rewatchable at all. If you haven't seen this and if you like dramas, I recommend it.
