Storyline

Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he loved once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach... a girl named Eden. Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grownup Eden on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back... Not even the law or science!

Trivia

One set featured an upside chandelier. "We built three quarters of a chandelier, not the very top, but everything else, (and there) was a steel rod up the center holding it down," says Production Designer Alex McDowell. "We had to wire up the crystals so that they looked like they were hanging." See more »

Goofs

The TransWorld building is connecting both worlds, therefore matter from one world must come into contact with inverse matter - and according to the laws of double gravity, get hot and burn within a few hours. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Adam: The universe, so full of wonders. I could spend hours and hours looking up at the sky. So many stars, so many mysteries. And there's one very special star that makes me think of one very special person. Now let me tell you my story.

Simply magnificent
12 February 2013 | by (Cambridge, UK) – See all my reviews

Seldom comes a love story which is a scientific fantasy and cinematically this beautiful. If you liked 'Another Earth' then you are bound to love this one as well. Jim Sturgess leaves his mark and gives another strong performance after 'One Day'. Dunst gave a good performance comparable to her role in 'Wimbledon'. Timothy Spall was excellent as always. The point of excitement for me is that imaginary science in fantasies like this one is getting better and better. It is beautiful that author redefines the rules of gravity in both world and follows it up nicely. I know that many science geeks would find a lot of flaws for argument, but in my opinion, it is a very apt movie for the popular cinema.
