Storyline

Seventeen year-old Rhoda Williams receives an acceptance letter from MIT and she celebrates with her friends. On the same night, a planet similar and close to Earth is discovered and called Earth 2. Rhoda drives her car looking at Earth 2 and crashes with composer John Burroughs, killing his pregnant wife and his baby son. Rhoda goes to prison and four years later she is released and moves to her parents' house. She finds a job as high-school janitor, but tries to commit suicide. She survives, however, and submits an essay to a contest where the prize is a ticket to travel to Earth 2. Meanwhile the scientists discover that Earth 2 is a mirror of Earth and the synchronicity between the dwellers was interrupted when the planets were seen by each other. One day, Rhoda decides to visit John Burroughs, whose life was destroyed after the death of his family, to admit to him that she had killed his family. However she does not have the nerve to tell him the truth. So she lies and tells him ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Good, well acted, but eh.
29 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie reminded me of Gattaca. It was in a sci-fi futuristic 'setting' that wasn't really sci-fi at all. Having said that, I liked Gattaca more. This movie is 100% drama. Really the 2nd Earth is just a background topic and it doesn't really have much to do with most of the course of the movie. If you expect absolutely anything sci-fi, not here.

Although a minor detail, I cannot help but be continuously annoyed at the visuals of ~the~ 2nd Earth. At the beginning it mentions on a radio 'look her to see a small blue speck of a newly discovered planet bla bla bla' kinda like us seeing Mars when the lights right. The rest of the movie the planet is fully visible probably about 5x the size of the moon in the sky, you can make out the damn oceans. I know arguing physics in movies is stupid but it just irritates me.

But...the plot was good, convincing and acting was done well. If you like drama's for it in itself this is a pretty good one. To clarify, there is absolutely NO humor in this. Nothing really interesting happens. Just heavy emotional tensions in the characters. Not in me, for clarification.
