Beginning as a blue speck in the far distant horizon, in four years a new planet resembling Earth has moved into our solar system, creating a hovering phantom-like globe in the sky. Mike Cahills Another Earth, is a quietly beautiful meditation on guilt, redemption, and second chances. The premise of the film is that the new planet is an exact mirror of the Earth, containing a duplicate version of ourselves who mirror our earthly circumstances. Cahills main focus, however, is the attachment between two damaged individuals who begin to bring each other back to life after a devastating incident that forever scarred their lives.
As the film opens, Rhoda Williams (Brit Marling), a bright 17-year old, drives her car through a red light, putting composer John Burroughs (William Mapother) in a coma and killing his pregnant wife and their young son. When the still guilt-ridden and morose Rhoda is released from prison, she tries to set her life in order by moving back with her parents Kim (Jordan Baker) and Robert (Flint Beverage), and taking a job as a high school janitor. There she sees John placing a toy robot at the site of the accident.
On a whim she pretends to be a maid offering a free trial for a cleaning service. In the back of her mind, however, is finding a way to release her inner torment. John takes her up on her offer and asks her to come back each week to clean his house and, though they slowly begin to open up to each other, she postpones her confession about the accident.
After listening to TV broadcasts talking constantly about the possibility that your identical twin on Earth 2 might be a happier and more satisfied version of you, Rhoda enters a contest to become the first voyager to visit the other Earth. Astonishingly, she wins first prize. Marked by outstanding performances, Another Earth is a quietly powerful work of art that suggests that the biggest world to conquer is the one that is right before our eyes.
