Another Earth

de Mike Cahill



Rhoda has just been admitted to the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology when, while driving back from a party, she sights a planet on the horizon. Distracted, she crashes into another vehicle, killing several members of the same family. Years go by and it is discovered that this planet is an exact replica of the Earth, with doubles of all of its inhabitants. Rhoda, after serving her sentence for her responsibility in the accident, decides to contact the only survivor of the disaster, but without revealing her true identity. Slowly, the two of them get closer and closer while Rhoda can’t stop thinking about the duplicate planet that silently observes her from the sky.
