I'll Follow You Down is a sci-fi exploration of wormholes, parallel universes, love, and the possibility of starting over. An accomplished physicist (Sewell) mysteriously disappears on a business trip. Abandoned, his wife (Anderson) and son Erol (Osment) struggle to cope. Years later, now a young scientist himself, Erol uncovers papers, formulas, a mating, and a mind-bending possibility. But time travel is impossible. Isn't' it? Erol's obsession to find his father and restore his family will throw him into the unknown and possibly threaten his life. What would you do to repair the past? (Gary Reber)

Special features include a behind-the-scenes featurette (HD 12:47), deleted scenes (HD 04:25), the trailer, and upfront previews.

The 2.40:1 1080p AVC picture appears to be digitally photographed with imagery that is vibrant and vivid. Contrast is well balanced with deep, solid blacks and revealing shadow delineation. The color palette exhibits strong primaries, with rich and vibrant hues that are warmly textured. Fleshtones are naturally hued throughout. Resolution reveals fine detail, especially during close-ups of facial features, hair, clothing, and object texture. The imagery is pristine throughout, though, the picture exhibits a digital presence, as would be expected for a TV network production. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack delivers good fidelity, with a nicely recorded, predominately string orchestral music score that extends to the surrounds with good dimensionality. Deep bass is limited, but dynamics sound natural, with effective atmospherics and sound effects. During the time-travel sequences, the .1 LFE channel kicks in to enhance the dramatics. Dialogue is consistently intelligible and nicely integrated spatially. Overall, this is a satisfying soundtrack experience but essentially quietly expressive. (Gary Reber)
