Speaking of low budget/foreign films, has anyone seen Another Earth, the movie that premiered at Sundance in 2011? I've seen less than twenty minutes of it and I CANNOT SEEM to catch it on television anymore. I've considered looking it up online, but laziness always prevents me from doing so, but I'm super interested in it.
Rhoda Williams (Brit Marling) is a brilliant 17 year-old who has spent her young life trained on the stars, and recently learned she was accepted to MIT. In a reckless celebratory moment, she drinks with friends and drives home intoxicated. Listening to a story on the radio about a planet that looks just like Earth, she gazes out her car window at the stars and inadvertently hits a stopped car at an intersection, putting John Burroughs (William Mapother) in a coma and killing his wife and son.
It seems quite the film, though some third party comments on it would be appreciated!
