Rhoda Williams (Brit Marling), a bright young woman accepted into MIT's astrophysics program, aspires to explore the cosmos.

A brilliant composer, John Burroughs (William Mapother), has just reached the pinnacle of his profession and is about to have a second child with his loving wife.

On the eve of the discovery of a duplicate Earth, tragedy strikes and the lives of these strangers become irrevocably intertwined. Estranged from the world and the selves they once knew, the two outsiders begin an unlikely love affair and reawaken to life. But when one is presented with the chance of a lifetime opportunity to travel to the other Earth and embrace an alternative reality, which new life will they choose?

  • 1 star "Probably the worst movie (if you can call it that) ever made. Great Idea, very poor execution..."
  • 1 star "the film had potential, good acting and all that, but spent too much time on nosensical asides, like the janitor who put bleach in his eyes for reasons no one really explained , after far too long focusing on her inner guilt and attempt at a resolution, the main story line the EARTH 2 and the visit there seems all but forgotten, then it finally resurfaces and just when you think it will be revealed as to what it's like there (which is why most people will watch this) the film ends abruptly with a cliche'd cliffhanger wide open for a sequal end scene! all in all very disappointing... needless to say i wont be waiting with baited breath for the next instalment"
