Rhoda Williams, a bright young woman accepted into MIT's astrophysics program, aspires to explore the cosmos. A brilliant composer, John Burroughs, has just reached the pinnacle of his profession and is about to have a second child with his loving wife. On the eve of the discovery of a duplicate Earth, tragedy strikes and the lives of these strangers become irrevocably intertwined. Estranged from the world and the selves they once knew, the two outsiders begin an unlikely love affair and reawaken to life. But when one is presented with the chance of a lifetime opportunity to travel to the other Earth and embrace an alternative reality, which new life will they choose?

Compelling style, masterful acting, terrific writing (by the director and the primary actress), restrained but innovative visuals. The science doesn't matter at all (you can almost forget about the whole "two earth" thing). Just flow along with the story and the characters. You won't get it out of your mind for days.
It's these kind of "well, what if" scenarios that draw me in and light up my imagination! However, Another Earth never fully fleshes out this idea, but leaves you to your own imagination–think of your classic bikini poster, tantalizing and exciting, but you never see what you're really hoping to see.
Am I saying this devalues the movie? No, not at all. The greatest sci-fi and fantasy worlds leave much to the audience's imagination. You'll have to accept this truth as well or left feeling blue-balled that you never quite see the whole picture.
This is another in a new vanguard of sci fi films bravely and creatively attempting to paint a slice of potential reality in an era grappling to come to grips with the meaning of life, and suffering, amidst the new physics of 9 dimensions, 11 dimensions, string theory, parrallel universes, and a holographic, pulsating, living, universe of infinite potentialities and infinite possibilities. Where and how do we fit in?
This film begs the question ...are the answers out THERE? or do we look within ourselves and ask what is conciousness?....and love? and does the power of love supercede the material? Are spirit and matter and conciousness juxtaposed one against the other? Or are they somehow intertwined by love? Are we all ONE, united by love? and is the redemption we seek out among the stars? Or is it within that truly lies the kingdom of heaven?
The brilliant script and superb acting in this film bring forth these questions and others like it. I highly recommend it! 5 stars!!!
