Out of this world theme, down to earth story
While Earth 2 looms in the background throughout this science-fiction drama, the focus in Another Earth is on this earth, and on Rhoda, played convincingly by Brit Marling. Rhoda searches out a stranger, John, played by William Mapother (Ethan from Lost) with whom she has a horrific connection. Bad choices & their consequences, forgiveness & reconciliation, and penance, play large roles in this human centered drama. While this story could have been told sans Earth 2, the spector of the 2nd earth adds to the intrigue.
A very watchable and moving film that earns its 5 out of 5 Poblanos!
