From the moment it appears in the sky, a duplicate Earth exerts its influence over the film’s two troubled protagonists, first bringing them together in a terrible accident.

“The synopsis of Another Earth sounds misleadingly sci-fi heavy: scientists suddenly discover a second Earth whose unusual orbit has hidden it from view behind the sun all this time, and soon learn that there are strange parallels between that Earth and our own, including the possibility of alternate selves for each one of us. Sounds like an episode of The Twilight Zone, right? In fact, all that is just a setup for a deeply personal and philosophical exploration of identity, remorse, loss and reconciliation. The particulars of the story are best left to the film itself, but Mike Cahill’s direction is spot-on, and Brit Marling’s tour de force as producer, co-writer and one of the very best actors at Sundance is stunning.” — Michael Dunaway, Paste
