This "deeply emotional...extraordinarily profound" (USA Today) film became a must-see sensation at the Sundance Film Festival. "Beautiful, bright and fearless" (Associated Press) newcomer Brit Marling and fan favorite William Mapother (TV's “Lost”) star as Rhoda and John, two people whose worlds collide after a tragic accident. Their intimate drama plays out against the astounding discovery of Earth 2, a parallel world that poses provocative and fascinating possibilities. Does a new Earth mean a chance at another life? Another destiny? Another self? "Another Earth is science-fiction at its best" (The Hollywood Reporter) -- with a mind-bending surprise ending that you will never forget.

Cast & Crew
The result is an alluring image -- Earth above Earth -- a wrenching story and a wonder-tinged film.
The wildly improbable set-up is merely the jumping off point for an exploration of grief, guilt and redemption that plays out almost entirely between two people thrown together by circumstance.
A stripped-down sci-fi indie that made waves at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
Instead of a fleet of Evil Kirks descending on us in souped-up space shuttles, we get a quietly moving parable of redemption.
The metaphysics function as a metaphor in what's an affecting -- if slow-moving -- drama about having to live with the choices we make and our need to find redemption.
It's one of the year's best indie releases.
One of the smart, effective things about Another Earth is that it treats the discovery of a parallel planet in, excuse the pun, a down-to-earth manner.
