Return on DVD in August

18 July 2012

Leaving the war behind, Kelli (Cardellini) can't wait to re-join her old life in the rust Belt town she's always known. She is ready to experience the old feelings of everyday life again, to enjoy the most mundane smells and touches that everyone safely at home knows well.

But slowly, the realisation dawns on her that what was once so familiar is now alien and disconnected and trifle. Her friends, children and husband need more focused attention than she can give. Try though he might, her husband Mike (Shannon) does not understand what she has been through. As dislocation ripples through her world, Kelli risks becoming an outsider; thrown back on her own resources, she must now try and find a new way forward...

Liza Johnson's understated story of a military worker returning home after a tour of duty stars an ensemble cast of Linda Cardellini, Michael Shannon and John Slattery. The drama was financed by the Sundance Laboratory and premiered to high acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival 2011.

Return (cert. 15) will be release on UK DVD on 6th August 2012 by Network Releasing at the RRP £14.99.

Extra features will be:

  • Interview with lead actress Linda Cardellini and director Liza Johnson;
  • Trailer.
