Linda Cardellini, Tim Blake Nelson and Michael Shannon to star in Return
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I get nervous whenever I read about a movie that tries to tackle the Iraq or Afghanistan wars. It’s so tough to make a decent war movie while the war is actually going on. I was one of the few people that didn’t love THE HURT LOCKER, but it’s really the only movie to be able to tackle the wars with any kind of success. But that’s not going to stop first time director Liza Johnson from having a go at it with the upcoming drama RETURN. The film will focus around a woman that returns home from the war to her husband and kids and struggles to readjust to her home life.
Linda Cardellini will be playing the war vet while Michael Shannon will play her husband. Tim Blake Nelson also stars as a fellow war vet that befriends her when she returns home.
