User 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.
