Another Earth

another earth

On the night of the discovery of a duplicate Earth in the Solar system, an ambitious young student and an accomplished composer cross paths in a tragic accident. (IMDb)

I thought this was absolutely fascinating. What writer/director Mike Cahill and writer/actor Brit Marling have done is create this script that’s a really nice blend of drama and sci-fi. It’s a human story at the root of it, but it uses the whole other Earth as a sort of framing device. It also brought up the debate of what if there is another you out there? Would you want to meet them? I think Brit Marling as a fascinating screen presence and I really enjoy watching her. I wasn’t as impressed by William Mapother as the composer, but he still did a nice job. There was some really beautiful cinematography going on. Mostly the shots of the other planet in the sky. The ending is ambiguous but fascinating. It had me and my friend talking about it for a good 15 minutes afterward. A definite recommendation from me.
