《归来》是2014年张艺谋导演拍摄的剧情文艺电影,改编自严歌苓小说《陆犯焉识》的尾点,由邹静之编剧。   

该片主要讲述了知识分子陆焉识与妻子冯婉瑜的在大时代际遇下的情感变迁故事。上世纪70年代初,与家人音讯隔绝多年的劳改犯陆焉识,因思念心切在一次农场转迁途中逃跑回家。他的行为给怀有芭蕾舞梦想的女儿丹丹带来巨大的压力。女儿想方设法阻止母亲冯婉喻与父亲陆焉识相见,结果使夫妻俩近在咫尺,却只能再次相隔天涯。文革结束后,陆焉识终于平反回家,却发现家中的一切早已物是人非——女儿丹丹放弃了自己的芭蕾梦想,成为一名普通的女工;而更让陆焉识深受打击的是,他深爱的妻子冯婉喻,因患病已然不再认识眼前的他。深厚的感情、生活的变故,迫使陆焉识做出了对他来说最荒诞却又最合理的人生选择。
