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

Trivia

Filmed in and around New Haven, Connecticut - Mike Cahill's hometown. Cahill knew that by filming there he would be able to call on favors from family and friends, helping keep costs down. This is particularly true of the car crash that is an integral part of the film. One of Cahill's friends is a police officer who was able to shut down some roads to allow for filming. See more »

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.

Truly Amazing
30 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best films I have seen this year. I love science fiction and all that, but this film is not about that, if you are concerned about facts and fingers about space and whether x equals y and is it possible etc then don't watch this film. If you are wanting to watch a master piece of filming and directing with a truly hart felt story then this is for you, from the very beginning I was hooked until the final seconds of the film without interruption. Watch this film when you have time on your own in silence and sit back to enjoy a master piece in its own right. This film is in my top 20 of all time, watch it you will not be disappointed.
