Gabriel (Rufus Sewell) was a brilliant scientist who left on a business trip and just disappeared. His son, Erol (Haley Joel Osment) and his grandfather (Victor Garber) work together to figure out what happened to Gabe. What they found was that he had found a way to cross into another time line, and wanted to talk to Albert Einstein, planning to return immediately, but something happened to him so for the last 12 years life has gone on without him. It’s up to Erol to figure out if there is a way to recreate his father’s work and find out the truth of what happened.

I am a sucker for time travel stories. It’s one of the most fascinating concepts to me, and as a result, I loved the intense detail they put into the story and the process by which things happened. The paradox of time travel, (What happens when you change something) has always been a favorite concept for me to think about, ever since I was a child. Haley Joel Osment is excellent in his role as the troubled genius that has the smarts to figure it out, but must deal with the consequences if it doesn’t turn out as expected. Life will certainly be different if he succeeds, and what will the costs be? The story unfolds and as always happens in a time travel movie, you have to think through the consequences of messing with time. It’s not heavy, and the story is told quickly, but is very deep emotionally, and doesn’t judge. Too many sci-fi stories, especially time travel stories have too much moral lessons and not enough fun. I guess Rod Serling and Gene Roddenberry taught us that good sci-fi must have a moral to teach us. Other than the “There’s No Place Like Home” theme, this is a movie with a very interesting story, a really great cast, excellent music (The theme is awsome), and is very solidly put together. I really enjoyed this one, and I must recommend this movie as one that is really a hidden gem! I don’t know where this film has been since 2014, but I’m glad it finally made it to the top of my queue. Great job, guys!
