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 »

Quotes

[first lines]
Gabe: Time's up.
Young Erol: Wait!
Marika: Is the truck loaded?
Gabe: Yes, ma'am. Come on. I have a plane to catch.
Marika: Well, if you don't leave now, you're going to miss your flight, and then he's going to be late for school. Come on, come on. Games up.

intriguing sci-fi
27 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I admit that I am fascinated by the whole idea of time travel, so I watched "I Will Follow You Down" with great interest.

Marika (Gillian Anderson) and her son Erol drop their husband and father off at the airport when he travels to a conference in New Jersey. He never returns.

Twelve years later, Erol (now Haley Joel Osment) learns not only what happened to his father, but also learns that there may be a way to get him back.

This film starts slowly but still manages to draw you in. It deals with not only time travel, but the ramifications of a situation change because of time travel. The acting is very good, with Osment turning in a top performance. Gillian Anderson is full of surprises - from X-Files to work in England, including a highly-touted Streetcar Named Desire - she's obviously a dedicated performer, and it shows here.

I liked it - you care about the characters, and the story is good. Can't ask for much more.
