 On the night a duplicate Earth suddenly appears in the Solar system Rhoda (Marling) is in an accident which forever changes the lives of those involved.

 Young and incredible talented Marling (I Origins, 2014) started writing movies, when she got fed up only being offered parts as ‘cute blond’ in horror movies and thankfully so. Because she has proven to be a talented writer with an ability to create poetic movies. So far, she herself has starred in the movies she has created and watching her on screen her talent is evident. Beautiful in a hypnotic way that draws your attention to her every time she is on screen and with a soft voice, Marling matches her writing, especially here in this delicate sci-fi drama. Though calling it a sci-fi drama is almost wrong. Yes, there is a duplicate Earth in the sky, but it plays like background music to the human drama. In the beginning the movie jumps between short scenes making the pace somewhat in inconsistent, but as marling lures you into the story of Rhoda you are captured. It is definitely not for everyone, but it is a beautiful and simple independent movie about life and loss and worth a watch alone for the amazing Marling.

Moviegeek info:

 Brit Marling approached William Mapother for the role of John after “being haunted” by his performance in In the Bedroom (2001). Mapother consented to work on Another Earth for $100 a day.
