Another Earth stars Brit Marling in a quiet tale of loss and atonement. But it’s too quiet, and has too many problems. Brit Marling carries a definite magnetic quality, so there is value for those in need of a Marling fix. She is an exciting new force in film today, having co-wrote this movie and the 2nd best film of last year, Sound of My Voice. I have a feeling she’s about to break out as a major star; she has a number of upcoming projects in the works to make that happen.
Another Earth brought the obvious connection to Lars von Trier’s Melancholia, another not entirely successful story about worlds colliding. 4/10
