The Returned – This televisual adaptation of the 2004 French movie proved to be one of the highlights of 2013 on the small screen. Unsettlingly played, but satisfying in it’s execution, it’s well worth seeking out. Apt timing for disc release too, considering that The Sweet Hereafter is also released today.
