Writer/director Richie Mehta’s time-jumping tale, I’ll Follow You Down, will be getting a DVD and Blu-ray push from Well Go U.S.A. on Aug. 5. This follows a selected-city theatrical launch in early June.
Gabriel Whyte (Rufus Sewell) is a researcher working on wormholes or time travel — or some such thing — who kisses his wife Marika (the X-Files Gillian Anderson) and young son goodbye one morning and heads off to Princeton for a three-day gathering of brainiacs … and promptly disappears.
That was back in 2000. A dozen years have passed and his son, Erol (Haley Joel Osment), is now following in his father’s footsteps. One day he is approached by his grandfather (played by Victor Garber) with an interesting proposition … your father, my son, is not dead, instead he solved the riddle of time travel and has gone back in time.
That may sound farfetched, but he’s found his son’s detailed notes and needs his grandson to see if the theoretical work is actually possible. He’s absolutely convinced that his son made the jump along a very specific timeline to meet one individual (and very famous at that) at a key point in time.
Challenged by the love of his life, Grace (Susanna Fournier), Erol must face her concerns, “Stop working on this … everyday I’m afraid that this will all disappear because you will succeed.” It is a conundrum that will tax his very sanity.
