How do you get an audience to sympathize with a felon? Well, you cast a great actress and write a great script. 'Another Earth' is a fascinatingly strange sci-fi thriller about a girl who, on the night of a duplicate earth discovery, manages to forever change the life of herself and a composer during a tragic accident. This film asks many things of its audience, which include buying into an obscure and uncomfortable romance, and for the most part it succeeds very well. While it doesn't hit the emotional highs of something like Arrival or Interstellar, on a much smaller level, it challenges the audience's brain, and sometimes that's all you can ask for out of a science fiction film. And given just how creative and unique 'Another Earth' is, I give this film all the credit it deserves.
