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 »

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.

Haley Joel Osment could become an A-List adult actor.
8 June 2014 | by RefluxSee all my reviews

"I'll Follow You Down" is that wonderful, inexpensive film you hope to see now and then which surprises the viewer with an explosion of talent from both sides of the camera. I am not going to go into the plot at all except to say that it involves the strong emotional relationships and motivations of people propelled into an off-center drama inspired by a science fiction story element.

The writer/director is Richie Mehta, who shows tremendous depth and common sense in his plotting and his characters' dialog, as well as in his non-gimmicky, straight-forward choice of how to use his camera to let the actors shine as they carry the story through to the last frame. I send kudos to Gillian Anderson, Rufus Sewell and Victor Garber for their "generosity towards up-and-coming film makers," in that they supplied wonderfully tuned supporting performances for what was likely very little income. Haley Joel Osment, who was a terrific child actor ("The Sixth Sense" and "A.I.") gives a rock-steady performance here as a multi-layered adult in his young twenties. If he gets the right future film choices, directed by people who correctly make use of his talent, he could become an A-List adult actor by his early thirties. In the meantime, try to catch this little gem of a movie whenever it is available as a theatrical, DVD and/or cable release.
