After some years, happily married Minnie Driver (as Maggie) and husband Paul Adelstein (as Aaron Royal) are expecting their first child. The affluent couple is understandably excited about the arrival of little "Arthur". However, a tragic occurrence during Ms. Driver's ninth month changes everything. "Return to Zero" is based on a true story, according to the opening. Written and directed by Sean Hanish, it's rare to find believability in the "true story" boast, but this one is genuine. Thanks to Mr. Hanish and his co-stars, it gets off to a great start. Although the couple is wealthier and a little more melancholy than most, we can identify with their circumstance and reactions – for example, Driver's tantrum while returning a gift. Yet, while the basics remain intact, the couple drifts away from the audience as they drift away from each other. We lose touch. The confusing flashback to childbirth and loud Christmas in Las Vegas and seem out of place. After an affair ends abruptly and Mr. Adelstein's father pontificates, an effectively emotional conclusion brings it home.

Critic Reviews

Idris Elba Could Be Your Bartender ...

If he wasn't acting, that is. The "Turn Up Charlie" star relates to his character and shares the strangest jobs he's had. Plus, hear what it's like playing a villain in Hobbs & Shaw.
