Return to zero.

Lifetime's latest acquisition, "Return to Zero," is a painful portrait of devastating loss, pivoting on a performance by Minnie Driver that acutely captures those raw feelings. Based on writer-producer-director Sean Hanish's personal experience, the movie chronicles a couple dealing with a stillborn baby and the consequences its aftermath produces on their relationship. While the Lifetime-movie crowd will no doubt be able to identify with the emotion, the movie gets a tad uneven in the later going, stumbling toward a resolution that begins to fray around the edges, despite a first-rate cast.

EXEC PRODUCER: Kelly Kahl

CAST: Minnie Driver, Paul Adelstein, Alfred Molina, Connie Nielsen, Kathy Baker, Andrea Anders, Sarah Jones
