Another Earth: Film ReviewTuesday, 29 November, 2011
First year college student Rhoda Williams (Brit Marling) causes accidental devastation to the family of composer John Burroughs (William Mapother), Maya Burroughs (Meggan Lennon), and their son (AJ Diana). It’s a moment’s distraction – with lifetime consequences for them all – caused by the appearance of a new planet parked alongside Earth.
Earth 2 looks exactly the same as Earth 1. Most likely, as a character points out, so far as Earth 2 is concerned, it’s probably Earth 1.
Which of the two seemingly identical planets is the original – if either? And if Earth 2 looks the same, are there people on it? The same people? Every one of us? Another Earth is about looking at ourselves from the outside – suppose that we could suddenly see ourselves as others see us? And how can someone make up for something done wrong that shatters other people’s lives?
