I watched this over the weekend and I really enjoyed it. Another Earth appears within travelling distance of the one we’re on, and on it are other versions of us, who, up until the point where we discovered each other, have lived exactly the same lives.
But that’s not what the story’s about, and I love it for that, love if for having that massive thing in the background but focussing on the story of two people. Distracted by the appearance of the other Earth, young Rhoda crashes into the car of a professor, killing his wife and son. After she’s served four years for said accident she goes to apologise but ends up cleaning for him.
It’s not a perfect film, but it is good. And it’s ambitious and it’s different, and I loved it.
