|Theatrical Movie Poster (2011)|
This film is more about the characters, more of a human story than a pure science fiction film. But the film is very deep and emotional; it makes you the audience think and self-analyze yourselves. Overall, one has to imagine the idea of being responsible of destroying not just one life, but three lives, plus your own and those close to you. Life is short and you might stop and think that what are or will be the repercussions of your actions. For Rhoda, this is something that never crossed her mind, as a result, she had to pay the price and live with her guilt.
Outstanding performances by both Marley and Mapother, who create such grief stricken and lost characters that this reviewer hasn't seen in a very long time. Both Rhoda and John are people we can invest out time and emotions into and come out leaving as if you have just lived their sad and traumatic lives. Also great job to director Mike Cahill, who also co-wrote the film with Marley. This was Cahill's feature film debut, and it received rave reviews from those who say the film originally at the Sundance Film Festival. It played mostly at independent movie theaters ans well as some art house theaters.
ANOTHER EARTH is a gem of a film; a deeply sensitive and thought provoking film that must be shared by those who love films. Nothing will prepare you of just how incredible the film is. And the big surprise ending will leave you debating about it with your friends for hours. So if you see this film on either your local cable provider or at your favorite video store, pick it up and be transported to movie nirvana. Five out of five stars!!
ANOTHER EARTH is available on both Blu-Ray combo packs and on standard DVD. To purchase a copy, visit your local retailer or visit the Amazon website at www.amazon.com.
