A maverick quantum physicist (Bill Sage), shattered by the accidental deaths of his wife and daughter, attempts suicide, then retreats into solitary misery. Neighbors and colleagues try to rouse him from his isolation, but he’ll suspend his flashback-filled mourning only to tinker on a mysterious gizmo that opens portals of space, time, and consciousness, or something. This indie sci-fi drama by first-time writer-director Zach LeBeau looks pretty good, but it’s terminally talky and paced like a glacier headed uphill. Steve Horner’s noodly and relentless New Age score protracts an already extended and nebulous spiritual voyage. 88 min.
