  • Johnson's feel for the rhythms of reconnection are steady, and she and her fine actors make Return one of only a handful of films to honestly address what to many is heartbreaking reality. show more

  • As director Liza Johnson understands, simply being over there changes someone, no matter if anything unusually traumatic happened to the person. show more

  • Return comes briefly to life when John Slattery of "Mad Men'' turns up as an acerbic yet sympathetic reclusive drunk whom Kelli meets during court-mandated rehab. But it's not enough for a film that limps along to a pretty much preordained climax. show more

    Less than 3 percent of America has ever served, and 1 percent has sereved overseas in a combat zone. This is a powerful film from a female soldiers perspective. It really makes the audience understand for 91 minutes of time the hardships our soldiers are going through upon their return to civilian life. The viewers score represents the few people that have actually seen the movie, and I am really glad that this movie is available for people to see. Each veteran pays for the price of freedom, and most end up having to do it again. Slow, but paints such a realistic point of view. A much watch for veteran spouses.
