In Return To Sender, Miranda (Pike) is a dedicated nurse, an exquisite cake maker, and an impeccable friend. But when she agrees to a blind date and the wrong man comes to her door…her perfect world is shattered by a brutal assault. Even after her attacker, William (Fernandez), is convicted and locked away for the crime, Miranda can't overcome the fear and trauma enough to put her orderly life back together. Desperate for closure, she reaches out to William––first through letters, then prison visits––and slowly builds a relationship with him. But when William is paroled and comes looking for her, Miranda seizes the opportunity to exact revenge. (Gary Reber)

Special features include upfront previews.

The 1.85:1 1080p AVC picture looks terrific with a robust, but perfectly natural color palette that exhibits rich and warm hues. Fleshtones are perfectly natural throughout. Contrast is well balanced with excellent shadow delineation and deep, solid blacks. Resolution is excellent, with fine detail exhibited throughout, especially in facial features, hair, clothing, and object texture. This is a really natural, yet vibrant picture that really looks good. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is often quietly nuanced with punctuated atmospherics and sound effects that enhance the naturalness of the proceedings. Dialogue is nicely integrated spatially, but at times difficult to follow during the two-way phone conversations within the prison. Deep bass energy is evident during the more intense sequences. Much of the soundtrack is frontal focused, but there are sequences of aggressive surround activity. The music score is nicely recorded with piano accents and orchestral strings and extends to the surrounds. (Gary Reber)
