Nailing that crazy lady role is definitely Rosamund Pike‘s forte. Last year, she floored audiences with her breakout role as Amy Dunne in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” and eventually scored herself a well-deserved Oscar nod. And now, she’s once again proving that her flawless looks can be deceiving.
Before there was “Gone Girl”, there was “Return to Sender”, an American thriller film which also stars Pike as a crazy psychopath who’s out to get her revenge.
While it’s not a “Gone Girl” prequel, you can see how Pike first nailed her psychotic role in this film, directed by Fouad Mikati (of “Operation: Endgame” fame).
“Return From Sender” centres on Miranda (played by Rosamund Pike), “a dedicated nurse, exquisite cake maker and impeccable friend” whose life is changed after brutally assaulted by a man named William (played by Shiloh Fernandez) on a blind date. Though William is convicted and jailed for his crime, Miranda can’t overcome the fear and trauma enough to return to her former self. Desperate for closure, she begins to find strength and courage by reaching out to William. First through letters, then prison visits – Miranda slowly builds a relationship with him. But when William is paroled and comes looking for her, Miranda seizes the opportunity to exact revenge.
The full cast is as follows:
- Rosamund Pike as Miranda
- Shiloh Fernandez as William Finn
- Nick Nolte as Miranda’s Father
- Camryn Manheim as Nurse
- Illeana Douglas as Real Estate Agent
