Another Earth Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Director/co-writer [[Performer~P406465~Mike Cahill~mikecahill]] ([[Feature~V309912~Boxers + Ballerinas~boxers+ballerinas]]) teams with producer/co-writer [[Performer~P406466~Brit Marling~britmarling]] to challenge our concepts of reality and redemption with this romantic sci-fi drama about a radiant astrophysics student who endeavors to travel to Earth 2, a newly discovered mirror of our own home planet. Rhoda Williams ([[Performer~P406466~Marling~britmarling]]) was driving in her car and listening to the radio when the DJ announced the discovery of Earth 2, which had just appeared from the other side of the sun. Gazing out her window at the newly discovered planet, Rhoda neglectfully careens into a minivan carrying a small family. Everyone but the father is killed instantly, and Rhoda is sentenced to four years in prison. Upon emerging, the repentant reckless driver finds herself drawn to the lone survivor. Meanwhile, Rhoda learns of an essay contest to win a seat on a civilian space shuttle to Earth 2. Perhaps, on that strangely familiar planet, an alternate version of herself exists -- one that has made different choices, and followed a different life path. The only way she will ever find out is to win the contest and secure her seat on a ride into the great unknown. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
