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

Goofs

The web page Rhoda clicks in her search is "www.nhc.com" but the layout of the page she pulls up is clearly that of the NY Times (when the movie was made, and the current layout as of Nov. 2011). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Rhoda Williams: I saw this image when I was a kid. The photograph of Jupiter taken by NASAs Voyager. Beautiful. But nothing special until shown in rapid succession. Suddenly Jupiter was alive. Breathing. I was hypnotized.

Not for me.
19 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Keeping this short and simple:

The storyline never feels to go anywhere, the science is lame and the real story summed up in 15 words: It is a story about a car accident and a girl trying to redeem herself.

Personally I was disappointed by it as I was expecting more. If you are a science fiction fan this is probably not the film for you. If you on the other hand like to see people trying to better themselves and turn their life around (inspirational stuff, this is probably more your cup of tea!).

Finally: everyone has a right to their own opinion, I can understand why some people might love this film however it was certainly not for me.

Thanks for reading.
