Trivia

When the professor dismisses his class and is talking to his grandson, a bashful male student hurries between them and surreptitiously places an apple on the professor's desk. This is an inside reference to a similar bit in 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'. See more »

Goofs

When Erol and Gabe are playing chess the board is set wrong (the far left square at each side should be dark). Plus the move Erol suggests that might checkmate his father in three makes no sense at all, as "pawn 5 to pawn 3" can be neither a capture nor a legal pawn move. See more »

A little slow but hold on--the final third of the film brings everything together quite well.
15 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"I'll Follow You Down" is just out on DVD and it's certainly not a typical sort of sci-fi film. It's a lot slower, more deliberate and a bit more cerebral than many films in the genre, but if you are patient I think it's worth your time.

When the film begins, a professor goes off on a business trip and never returns. Exactly what happened and where he is now is a complete mystery. Unfortunately, his family does not handle his disappearance well. His wife (Gillian Anderson) becomes very depressed and over the following dozen years, she attempts suicide repeatedly. His son, Erol (played as an adult by Haley Joel Osment), is a mess as well and abandons his extremely promising career in favor of staying home and keeping an eye out on his unstable mom. He's also trying to balance his relationship with his girlfriend...and he's having a poor time with all these pressures. As for the disappeared man's father, Sal (Victor Gerber), he's also got his problems. To put it bluntly, they're all a mess. However, there is a strange and unbelievable chance that all this mess can be avoided when Sal looks through his son's notes and realizes that the guy MIGHT have disappeared when he tried out a time machine. He might have gone back to the 1940s and somehow never found his way back. Can he and his super-genius grandson, Erol, somehow construct their own time device and prevent the disappearance in the first place...and thus save the family?

If you want a film to jump into the action, this is NOT a film for you. The work to create this second time machine didn't even begin until about 2/3 of the way through the film and many folks will be annoyed by this slow pace. However, I didn't mind because once the film finally got moving, it really paid off well. The ending also manages to offer some surprises--something that seems to happen too infrequently.

In addition to an interesting plot, I liked seeing an adult Osment. His career has been a bit slower of late as he's clearly not some gifted child actor anymore and much of his recent work has been done doing voiceovers for video games. While not looking anything like a typical leading man, he was nice in the film--and Gerber and Anderson were also very, very nice. Overall, I'd recommend this film mostly because it is so unique.
