Fresh: The result is an alluring image -- Earth above Earth -- a wrenching story and a wonder-tinged film. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Aug 12, 2011

Fresh: Instead of a fleet of Evil Kirks descending on us in souped-up space shuttles, we get a quietly moving parable of redemption. – Kerry Lengel, Arizona Republic, Aug 4, 2011

Fresh: A stripped-down sci-fi indie that made waves at the Sundance Film Festival in January. – Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News, Aug 4, 2011

The Best Movie Of 2011 So Far

Everything works perfectly together. The acting, writing, story, plot execution, and cinematography are great. But the best attribute this movie has is its wise and philosophical viewpoint. An instant classic.


This movie requires a deeper level of understanding.
Best movie of 2011 so far.

Down To

Like its main character Rhoda, Another Earth is pensive and soberly daring. Rhoda hovers in a near-constant moral grey zone while we are both empathetic for and perturbed by her. Despite its dramatic plot and stunning backdrop the story is not obvious to follow; so, like all good movies, pay attention to its subtleties if you'd like to truly appreciate it. I can not wait to see what lovely Marling does next.
