    Another Earth offers imagination and provocation to spare. show more

    Amy Biancolli San Francisco Chronicle

    In its most touching moments, the film achieves a kind of sad and waltzing rhythm all its own. In its least, it's precious and plodding; the metaphoric link between grief and housework drags like a mop on a bathroom floor. show more

    Another Earth proves compellingly that science, intellect and emotion can coexist in mesmerizing synchronicity on the big screen. show more

    This small-scale film has more outsize ideas than it could possibly manage. Yet Mike Cahill's debut feature exerts a gravitational pull out of proportion to its size through powerful performances, a lyrical spirit, a succession of arresting images and a depth of conviction that sweeps logic aside. show more

    Another Earth has heft - emotionally, intellectually. show more

    The best science fiction tells stories about people in extraordinary environments or situations that serve to open up the vast, still largely unexplored terrain of the human heart. Mike Cahill's Another Earth is science fiction at its best. show more

    Ultimately just another less-accomplished entry in the booming cinema of catharsis, your average gorgeous-teen-astrophysicist-meets-schlubby-bereft-composer-whose-family-she-wiped-out-in-a-drunk-driving-accident-on-the-night-they-discovered-another-planet tale. show more

    More than anything, though, Another Earth is an impressive calling card for Brit Marling, who wrote and produced the movie with Cahill, a classmate from Georgetown University. Marling also steals the movie as Rhoda Williams. show more

    What's impressive is how well this film joins its parts into a whole. show more

    It's refreshing to see a movie tackling difficult ideas, even if, like the new Earth, it sometimes feels like the filmmakers have their heads up in the clouds. show more

    a brilliant film with great performances and great story with an excellent background, it is not a fiction film expecting to see who is watching a fiction will be disappointed, it is a timely drama very well built. The story flows well despite being a bit slow at times, but surely the other comes out of nowhere land that should be further explored in the film, the films with other soil I found this much better than melancholia, while the other was more trendy. Highly recommended.

    That was a bit of rubbish. I couldn\'t even make it through 30 minutes of the movie.

    Not a space movie... really weirdly cool. Give it time.. it starts a little slow; but it gets better. This is definitely a brain movie. Love Brit.
