Editorial Reviews

This "deeply emotional...extraordinarily profound" (USA Today) film became a must-see sensation at the Sundance Film Festival. "Beautiful, bright and fearless" (Associated Press) newcomer Brit Marling and fan favorite William Mapother (TV's “Lost”) star as Rhoda and John, two people whose worlds collide after a tragic accident. Their intimate drama plays out against the astounding discovery of Earth 2, a parallel world that poses provocative and fascinating possibilities. Does a new Earth mean a chance at another life? Another destiny? Another self? "Another Earth is science-fiction at its best" (The Hollywood Reporter) -- with a mind-bending surprise ending that you will never forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tragic convergence of lonely orbits December 6, 2011
I'm a cantankerous old goat, rarely moved to hyperbole, but I was simply enthralled by this film: totally absorbed throughout, except when I found myself chuckling giddily at the realisation I was watching a profoundly brilliant piece of cinema. The last time I had that sensation was in 1991 when I saw Silence of the Lambs. Another Earth is an utterly different film, but in its own way it offers, just as completely, everything that this medium of film promises and so rarely delivers.

In Another Earth, a new planet appears, close by, in the sky. In fact, it is another Earth, identical to our own. Thereafter, Earth II precipitates, frames and propels a delicate and desolate gravitational attraction between two irreparably damaged people. Irreparably damaged because the only thing which will heal them is the only thing that cannot: each other. Another Earth explores that relationship and, with the aid of the planet-sized metaphor, the ever-present path-dependency of our short, brutish existences.

This is an independent film: budgets are tight and much is shot, Blair Witch style, on a hand-held camcorder. The blown-out exposures, over-sharpened lines and noisy, boxy sound give the picture the feel of a student project. But science fiction with production values at zero is like silent film: if forces you to watch, and undistracted by dazzling computer generated images and 7.1 digital surround sound, you are drawn fully into the ingenious screenplay and the human resonances it explores.

Rhoda Williams is about to go to college. She's smart: she'll be an MIT astrophysics undergraduate, and she's handsome: not a million miles from a young Laura Dern. You might call her pretty, but she's by no means saccharine sweet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Insightful December 4, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie is very well done. No 3-D aliens and nothing exploded. Very thoughtful dialog and great use of the Science Fiction genre to tell a very human story. William Mapother (probably best known as "Ethan" in the seies "Lost") and Brit Marling (who has an economics degree from Georgetown an looks very comfortable playing the "smart girl" role)are very good. Kids will find this boring as will people that need helicopters in every other scene to keep their attention. But if you want to view deep characters in an interesting story, this is a jackpot. I gave this 4 stars but I'd call it a 4+.

Genre: Classic Science Fiction/Drama

Premise: After a young woman, Rhoda, drives drunk, killing a wife and her son, leaving the husband a widower, she tries to find worthwhile motivations and actions thereafter. A second Earth has entered Earth's orbit, an Earth where an identical version of Rhoda (and everyone else) may have made similar or dissimilar actions starting on the evening before her fateful decision to drive drunk. Rhoda is given the rare opportunity to fly in a spaceship to the other Earth and see if she can live in a world where she did not make her fatal mistake. Rhoda is also given the option to stay on her original Earth and try to make amends with the widower she harmed.

Review: Not since 2004's "Primer" have I been so impressed with a group of new writers and filmmakers putting together such a thought-provoking and well-made film.

The script is tight, linear, and clear, never needing to rely on flashbacks or long parallel-universe explanations and exceptions (as is so often the case in sci-fi stories). The cinematography is great. The storyboarding is solid. The use of the ever-enlarging Earth in the day and night sky is a beautiful and effective visual device. Not since the two Suns of Tatooine have I been so impressed with an environmental backdrop.

The sound design for the film is fully integrated with the screenplay progressions. The writers and director fully intended viewers to be using more than simply their visual senses. The narrative about the Russian cosmonaut's sound dilemma is poetic and consistent with the film's questions and themes.

The film editing is concise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should have done much better at the box office October 8, 2011
Why didn't this film do better at the box office? Was it the marketing or, was it was just too cerebral for most of the movie going public. Perhaps the trailer gave the impression of unremitting and unrewarded suffering. In the last case, be assured that there is true and well deserved redemption that comes with a twist at the end. Whatever the problem was, the fault was not the film. But, it prevented this movie from drawing an audience in numbers it should have. And that is a shame. Its failure at the box office will further dampen the spirits and limit the opportunities of truly original film makers. Don't let this happen. Buy this movie and reward intelligent, creative and thought provoking films that will provide a welcome relief to the normal mindless Hollywood fare.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Smart Film That Really Isn't Sci-Fi August 30, 2011
"Another Earth" is one of those refreshing films that I can say, in a positive tone, is unlike anything I've ever seen before. What if there was another earth just like ours out there? What if there was another you who made better choices? The film deals with grief, regret, sadness, and redemption creatively. Every time I began to roll my eyes at a plot development, a scene would come that would satisfy my skepticism. And the ending blew me away. While it may technically be sci-fi, it's the dramatic strength that carries the film. It's like what "Million Dollar Baby" was to boxing. Now this movie won't be for everyone, but I absolutely loved it, and you should really give it a try.
