Another You

Another Earth (2011)
Directed by Mike Cahill
Written by Brit Marling and Mike Cahill
Starring Brit Marling and William Mapother

Winner of the 2011 Sundance Festival, Another Earth centers around Rhoda, a seventeen-year-old high school student, and John, a professor of music.  On the night Rhoda is celebrating her acceptance to MIT, another earth becomes visible in the sky--just a little blue spot east of the North Star.  As Rhoda is gazing at the other earth, her existence collides with John's, changing their lives forever.  In her own words:  "She's naive, reckless.  She does something that's unforgivable."

Four years later, the other earth has gotten closer and is quite large in Earth One's atmosphere.  Scientists learn that Earth Two mirrors Earth One.  Does this mean a chance at another life?  Hoping for that chance for a new beginning, Rhoda submits an essay to a contest, the prize being a trip to Earth Two.

Another Earth is a wonderfully unique film with a super remarkable ending.
