Story


When Kelli (Linda Cardellini, Freaks & Geeks, Brokeback Mountain) returns home from war, she expected to slowly but surely settle back into her life with her husband (Michael Shannon, Boardwalk Empire) and kids in the small town she grew up in. But she gradually realizes that the life she left behind is no longer there waiting for her. Depicting Kelli's struggle to find her place in a life she no longer recognizes, Linda Cardellini delivers a tour de force performance, leading an all-star cast that also includes John Slattery (Mad Men). Proudly presented by DaDa Films and Focus World, a division of Focus Features, dedicated to seeking out the best in international, independent, and documentary cinema.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..firmly in the unassuming indie vein, Return treads lightly and leaves little imprint..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
“..almost too underdramatized to seem like a piece of today's zoomy entertainment, but its anxieties-the bare cupboards..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
“..the low-key drama finds Cardellini's Kelli out of sync with the life that once fit her..”
by Sheri Linden [Los Angeles Times]
