Here’s another sci-fi movie to keep an eye on: Mike Cahill’s “Another Earth”, which is making its debut over at Sundance on January 24, 2011. The premise? Pretty groovy:
On the night of the discovery of a duplicate planet in the solar system, an ambitious young student and an accomplished composer cross paths in a tragic accident.
Yup, that’s right. A duplicate Planet Earth shows up in the solar system. What’s it all mean? What the hell is going on? All good questions, but don’t expect invading alien hordes or flying saucers or anything like that. It looks like the film isn’t about action or flashy sci-fi, and more metaphysical, if you will.
Starring William Mapother, Brit Marling, Jordan Baker, Flint Beverage, and Robin Taylor. Director Mike Cahill co-wrote the screenplay with his star Brit Marling.
