Character Quotes

Miranda Wells: You saw that? You saw what I got to do? I got to stick a knife into a man’s throat in broad daylight and people wanted me to do it. In fact, they applauded.

Miranda Wells: You want me to sit and cry in therapy for 10 years, writing in some goddamn journal about my feelings? That’s not me. It’d be like drowning in a puddle. I’d be dying by inches. You want me to hate him forever? That hurts no one but me. I’m tired of hurting.

William Finn: You fucking crazy?
Miranda Wells: No. No, I’m not crazy, William. Crazy suggests that I don’t know right from wrong. And I do. This… is clearly wrong.


“Rosamund Pike deserves better than this queasy exploitation pic, which plays as a belated dry run for “Gone Girl.””
Guy Lodge, Variety

“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.””
Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
