And I just interviewed the man yesterday...

Titled Donovan's Echo, Danny Glover stars as Donovan "a man who lost his family in a tragic accident thirty years ago... a series of events lead him to believe that history is repeating itself so he goes out of his way to try and save his neighbour's from a similar fate." according to Quiet Earth.

Costarring alongside Mr Glover are Bruce Greenwood and Sonja Bennett.

An actual synopsis reads:

Once a brilliant mathematician, Donovan Matheson (Danny Glover) has been an outcast since an accident that killed his wife and daughter three decades ago for which he blames himself. He finally returns home as the tragic event's 30th anniversary approaches and begins discovering similarities to what had happened to him in the past. Convinced history is repeating itself, Donovan risks everything to save an unsuspecting family from the same tragic fate.

After screening for buyers at the Cannes Film Market earlier this year, the film will next be seen at the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) which runs from September 29 to October 14.

During my interview with him, I did ask Glover about the fact that he's starred in several indie flicks in recent years; and he seemed very content with the choices he's made, and didn't show any signs of slowing down anytime soon. A writer for The Hollywood Reporter was present for the Cannes screening and called it a "slow moving and leaden psychological drama," givin Danny Glover's performance a thumbs-up.

But we'll be watching this one's progress from here on:
