Quotes

Nancy: Hey! How was it? How'd it go?
Miranda Wells: Dr. Cyper's amazing. You'd think he was cutting the crusts off his kid's sandwich.
Nancy: So you really want to leave all of this for that?

Miranda Wells: Is this yours?
Nancy: Oh, yeah, sorry.
Miranda Wells: I will still be "all this" adjacent.
Nancy: I don't know why you want to be a surgical nurse. You know, I can take my kids barfing on me, I can take the patients whizzing on me, but the minute you pull out a scalpel, I'm ...

Flawed Thriller
25 January 2016 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The single nurse Miranda Wells (Rosamund Pike) is preparing to become surgical nurse and is buying the house of her dreams. Miranda is very close to her father Mitchell Wells (Nick Nolte) that is helping her to fix her house to sell it to raise the necessary money to buy the other house. One day, a colleague schedules a blind date with a sweet man called Kelvin. Miranda is still getting dressed when she sees a man on the porch. She assumes that the man is Kevin and invites him in, but he is actually a rapist that rapes her. When the real Kevin arrives, he finds Miranda in the kitchen and calls the police. Miranda identifies the rapist William Finn (Shiloh Fernandez) that is immediately arrested. When she recovers, her life turns upside down since nobody wants to buy her house and she can not be a surgical nurse since her right hand has tremors after the rape. Out of the blue, she writes a letter to William but the letter returns to her. She insists on sending it and when she receives a reply, she goes to the prison to visit William. When Williams is released, he is welcomed by Miranda in her house. What is happening to Miranda?

"Return to Sender" is a flawed thriller about a woman that sees her life partially destroyed after a rape. The Brazilian title is a spoiler since discloses that it is a story of revenge. However the plot is flawed since there are many evidences that Miranda had visited William in the prison and might have witnesses seeing the man working at her house. Therefore, in case of any investigation of his disappearance, Miranda could be a suspect since she has the motive. There are more smart means of revenging. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Sede de Vingança" ("Thirsty of Revenge")
