Another Earth is a beautiful, haunting film that manages to make its two main characters feel like real people, and makes the fate of these two lost souls seem as vital as what happens to this duplicate Earth.

Another Earth is quite a gem in a lot of ways, but wrapped in an enigma. It's a very sophisticated approach to a familiar theme.

I loved this movie. Having said that, I'm sure it's not for everyone.
September 8, 2013
Buried within Another Earth's framework is a wonderful sci-fi movie, but Cahill and Marling have unfortunately set it amongst this otherwise drab and predictable human drama.
January 14, 2013
The wildly improbable set-up is merely the jumping off point for an exploration of grief, guilt and redemption

I didn't hate Another Earth so much as I found it to have begun with a fascinating sci fi premise only to produce, ultimately, a conventional relationship film.

Another Earth occasionally slips into chin-stroking pretention, but it flies the flags for indies with ideas bigger than their budgets.

Another Earth doesn't fully come off - the slow pace stops it achieving escape velocity - but the intriguing ideas and Marling's touching performance make it a promising debut.
February 2, 2012
A movie about our unending desire for second chances, no matter how rarely they happen.

The science of this science fiction tale is about as wobbly as the rest of the picture. It's the dramatic punches and solid performances from the leads that keep this one afloat.

Marling... and Cahill teamed up to write this screenplay, cleverly weaving a science-fiction element... into the drama. This is most welcome, since the movie's main plot is pretty creaky.

As an aftermath character drama, it's superb; as sci-fi, it stumbles.

The way the sci-fi aspect is always in the background may make you try to second-guess the script, but the ending works - mostly because its as underplayed as the rest of the movie.

December 13, 2011
Existing on a ludicrous pretense and masquerading as a daring piece of fiction, this becomes nothing more than an utterly trite kitchen sink drama.

The little-known but very attractive [Brit] Marling certainly gives a very good performance, ( ... ) and perhaps it's her career that will really rocket after this.

The film moves as slowly as a heavenly body and is as contrived as it sounds.
December 9, 2011
I like the concept... Neat-o, if entirely outlandish... The problem is, screenwriters Brit Marling and Mike Cahill -- she also stars; he also directs -- don't know where to take it beyond that initial premise.
December 9, 2011
At its best, it is original and affecting, and one of the best American independent efforts at this year.

Both long-winded and profoundly unsatisfying.

[A] haunting, thought-provoking film that, while lacking Independence Day-style action, brims with atmosphere and intelligence.
