Excerpt: This movie is very different from the last couple of movies I've seen so far .. it was a pleasant watch . A simple plot with good characters .. a moving and touching film .. in parts in reminds me of eternal sunshine of spotless mind . Tho am not comparing but has a very warm feel to the movie which i love . to be honest i was a little confused by the end .. but after seeing it again am sure ill love it more .. worth the bluray .
Excerpt: I heard mixed things about Another Earth, mostly what I heard was that it was highly over-rated. As I was still highly intruded about the film I blind bought it on Blu-ray. I went in thinking I would probably be entertained for 93 minutes, however I got much more out of it than I expected. The style of the film is what got me. Yes it is a very independent film, yet it has something to offer which not many big Hollywood blockbuster movies have.
A really mesmerizing and moving story about second chances.

Excerpt: Brit Marling is a brilliant, talented, and amazing young woman whom I especially admire. Not only does she give us a strong performance as the film's leading character, she also co-produced and co-authored this stunning metaphysically stimulating sci-fi story. If you want something different than the run of the mill Hollywood sci-fi pop-outs, then this indie film will be a welcome treat for you. Also, don't be fooled by it being a low budget film.
Conclusion: The premise - another planet appears in the sky - would suggest that this is a sci-fi entry. Actually, it's not, it's basically a two-hander about guilt as young Brit Marling, who's responsible for the deaths of William Mapother's wife and son in a drunk driving accident, insinuates herself into his house in an attempt to heal her own pain. To that end, it's well played and done in a jittery style that suits the material.
Summary: Oder: Wir sind nicht allein Bester Blick von der Erde auf "Earth 2".

Nach ihrer Entlassung aus dem Gefängnis ist die nun 21-jährige ohne Perspektiven. Ihr Traum, einmal Astrophysikerin zu werden, ist zerstört. Ihr einst in so grossem Masse vorhandener Lebensmut ist bitteren Schuldgefühlen gewichen. Schöne Frau, schlimme Erinnerungen.
