Another Earth is an unusual hybrid of existential rumination on life choices, mind-bending sci-fi supposition, and challenging indie art film that moves at a pace that is often maddeningly oblique. Based on the marketing campaign, which plays up the science-fiction angle and special effects (of which there are very few, consisting mainly of offhand composite shots), the movie seems to be trawling for an audience that may be sorely disappointed by all the roundabout and often repetitive philosophically conceptual ideas that are hard to follow. That's not to say that Another Earth isn't rich in ideas or absorbing in its own right as a meditation on how specific moments play out and affect the cascade of alternatives that follow in their wake. Using broadly impressionistic and experimental strokes, the story follows the disjointed meanderings of 17-year-old Rhoda, who causes a tragic accident while driving drunk after celebrating her acceptance into college. The collision happens when she becomes distracted by the mesmerising planetary image glowing above her car's moon roof, which has just been identified as an exact duplicate of Earth. After four years of incarceration, she continues to suffer terrible remorse and tries to find a way to make peace with herself and the older man whose life and family she all but destroyed, and who is now crippled by depression. Her initial self-imposed penance is to adopt the role of an anonymous maid who comes to clean his decrepit house every week. As precious few details are added to their individual and mutual evolution and motivation, the constant of the alternate Earth, which has been steadily moving closer (along with its mirror-image Moon), hovers in the day and night sky, gazed upon with wonder and a growing idea that maybe it represents the redemption Rhoda can't find on her own. A corporate contest that will allow an ordinary citizen to make a shuttle trip to Earth 2 (or is it Earth 1?) becomes the catalyst for her belief that she can fundamentally alter both their lives for the better, but the movie never shows its hand in how or if this might work. Another Earth is another of those high-minded indie dramas that relies a little too heavily on rambling structure, shaky handheld digital camera, and arty shots of things like the play of light, clouds, and swirling dust motes to convey the corners of its characters' sometimes fascinating, sometimes inscrutable souls. Much has been made of the film's final shot, which is truly stunning in its unexpectedness and implications. But what those implications are will be cause for unending debate among viewers, many of who may never be able to come up with a satisfying answer. --Ted Fry

In a reckless, celebratory moment, she drinks with friends and drives home intoxicated. Listening to a story on the radio about a planet that looks just like Earth, she gazes out her car window at the stars and inadvertently hits a stopped car at an intersection, putting John Burroughs (William Mapother) in a coma and killing his wife and son. Rhoda is a minor, so her identity is not revealed to John. After serving her prison sentence, Rhoda, after 4 years of isolation, continues to shield herself from the world outside, becoming a janitor at a local school, wanting to work 'physically,' almost as a means to struggle past the potential she has squandered with the decision of a single night. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Sundance Film Festival, ...Another Earth (2011) (Blu-Ray)

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful 12 Dec 2011
I am not convinced if this is an Indie Sci Fi film or an Indie film with a bit of Sci Fi chucked in. If you just like your Sci Fi to be lasers, explosions and scientists driving around shouting at NASA on speakerphone this is certainly not for you.

The story is that another Earth (or Earth II as it is dubbed) appears in the sky. A girl who is drunk and driving is looking at it out of her car window crashes and wipes out a family. It then turns into a slow paced indie film about people dealing with their feelings in a well done but not massively original way with one moment of supreme pretentious rubbish which I am choosing to ignore.

At times the Indie "aren't we all so deep and meaningful" stuff is nearly too much, but Earth II hanging there in the sky along with the information drip fed to you via the media makes your "what if" synapses go off like machine guns.

More of that please.

This film. Wow. I have never been so completely blown away by a film. This is the film that slams every argument I've had with myself about entertainment passing itself off as genuine heartfelt art.

Another Earth seems to be about so many things, and yet not about them at all: you could say it's about loss, tragedy, physics, science fiction, consequences, redemption...and yet none of these things, singly or combined add up to what this film is. Simply put, it's a masterpiece of intricacy. I'm not really a film person - I'm a books-person - and for me, this film hit all those spots that only a handful of incredible books have reached. The way the scene concentrated so intensely on the moment, on everything about it - the texture of a wall, the space taken up by silence, the smallest nuances of expression, the play of light - every detail came together and gave it so many dimensions that you could watch each minute over and over and it would still be worth watching. The saw scene: so visceral and immediate and breathstopping (where that is a cross of heartstopping and breathtaking)...what a magnificent piece of work.

I loved that silence was given such a significant part. I think a lot of films are let down not necessarily by poor dialogue, but by oversaturating, so that the spoken so heavily overlays the visual that each diminishes the other. I also resent the overuse of music solely for mood manipulation (I realise there is an equal and opposite argument to that, but I'm on the less-is-more side): the fact that at the most emotive moments, there is no music at all, and all you can hear is your own breathing - that is when cinema is at its most powerful.

To quickly visit the entire premise of 'another earth'...this isn't Independence Day or anything like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Respect jetting upwards 29 Mar 2012
By L. Power TOP 500 REVIEWER
Watching Lars Von Trier's Melancholia, about an approaching planet led me to this movie made around the same time.

As Another Earth begins, we are introduced to a bright, attractive young girl with a brilliant future, with an interest in the Cosmos, and she has just got into MIT.

When another earth with the same continents and oceans appears in the sky, people get excited, some are nervous. As she drives along that night, a radio announcer talks excitedly about the new planet, while a father, pregnant mother, and five year old child sit talking in a parked car. Momentarily, she looks skyward. You can probably imagine what happens.

Now we have a woman whose life is but a walking shadow. After some time she returns to the world. But her star has somewhat diminished. Although she says little me may infer that she has unresolved grief and guilt which cripples her from moving forward in life. She takes a job that requires little human contact, as a cleaner. Her thoughts of jetting to a different sphere put on hold.

Returning to the scene, she discovers the husband, and contrives to meet him and seek forgiveness.

Discoveries about the other earth may make you wonder if there are people like you on this other earth, mirrors to ourselves, mirroring our events or not. Such possibilities offer the hope of redemption, although others find it frightening.

As the husband continues to contend with his waterlogged grief, his withdrawal, and limitations of his previous musical abilities, we see no way for her to broach this subject. Meanwhile, a Branson like entrepeneur offers a select few a free trip to the other earth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Was pleasantly surprised 21 April 2014
By Caro 57
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I am not sure what I expected this film to be like, but I didn't expect it to be this good. A little slow but it takes you on a journey and I love that. Not what you expect to come out of America these days, when all films must move at a million miles a second have throw visual effects at you. If you want to have a thought provoking hour or so, then this is your film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not sci-fi 21 April 2014
By Miranda
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is about the relationship between two people in exceptional circumstances and I did find it moving. Would get 5 stars except it panders to a number of fantasies in very predictable and psychologically unreal ways (lovely house, very photogenic leading lady!). Not sci-fi. The fact that there's another planet in the sky, earth 2 or any other, would start to rip the solar system apart, not just sit there waiting to be visited, so the other earth is just a philosophical premise and nothing to do with science.
