Another Earth 2011 Movie 11


Another Earth 2011 movie 11




Another Earth is a science fiction drama film that explores the possibility of a parallel world and the consequences of a tragic accident. The film was directed by Mike Cahill and starred Brit Marling, William Mapother, and Robin Lord Taylor. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2011 and was released by Fox Searchlight Pictures in July 2011.


Plot summary




The film follows Rhoda Williams, a brilliant young woman who is accepted into MIT's astrophysics program. On the night of her celebration, she hears a radio announcement about the discovery of a duplicate Earth in the solar system. She is distracted by the sight of the planet and crashes her car into another vehicle, killing a pregnant woman and her son, and putting the husband, John Burroughs, in a coma.

Four years later, Rhoda is released from prison and works as a janitor at her former high school. She is haunted by guilt and regret, and enters an essay contest sponsored by a millionaire entrepreneur who is offering a civilian space flight to the other Earth. She also visits John's house, intending to apologize, but pretends to be a maid instead. John, who has given up his career as a composer and lives in isolation, accepts her offer of cleaning his house. A relationship develops between them, but Rhoda does not reveal her true identity.


Rhoda wins the essay contest and is chosen to be one of the first to travel to the other Earth. John asks her not to go, believing they might have a future together. She finally decides to tell him the truth about who she is. He is furious and throws her out of his house. Rhoda hears an astrophysicist on TV explaining that the other Earth is a mirror of this one, but the synchronicity between them was broken when they first saw each other. She rushes back to John's house, but he refuses to let her in. She breaks into his house, and he begins to strangle her.


The film ends with a twist: Rhoda looks out of the window and sees another Rhoda standing on John's lawn. The other Rhoda has come from the other Earth, where she did not cause the accident that killed John's family.


Critical reception




The film received mostly positive reviews from critics, who praised its originality, emotional depth, and performances. The film has a 66% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 151 reviews, with an average rating of 6.5/10. The website's critical consensus reads: "Another Earth is a slow-paced but soulful examination of personal identity". The film also has a score of 66 out of 100 on Metacritic based on 33 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".


Some critics compared the film to other science fiction films that deal with parallel worlds or alternate realities, such as Solaris (1972), Donnie Darko (2001), Moon (2009), and Coherence (2013). Others praised the film for its low-budget aesthetic and its focus on human drama rather than scientific explanations. Roger Ebert gave the film three out of four stars and wrote: "Another Earth is as thought-provoking, in a less profound way, as Tarkovsky's Solaris , another film about a sort of parallel Earth". A.O. Scott of The New York Times called it "a small movie about big ideas" and "a haunting meditation on identity".


Awards and nominations




The film won several awards at various film festivals, including two prizes at the Sundance Film Festival: the Alfred P. Sloan Prize for films that focus on science or technology, and the Special Jury Prize for dramatic films. The film also won the Gotham Independent Film Award for Best Breakthrough Director for Mike Cahill. Brit Marling was nominated for several awards for her performance as Rhoda Williams, including the Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead and the Saturn Award for Best Actress. Cahill and Marling were also nominated for the Saturn Award for Best Writing.
