According to NASA apparently there are possibly millions of Earth-like
planets in the universe, each bearing just the proper conditions for the
appearance and evolution of life.
Furthermore NASA recently confirmed the existence of another Earth in
Well one of them looms large in this somewhat implausible sc-fi film.
Earth 2, as it is imaginatively titled, contains every living body that
inhabit our blue ball, including Rhoda Williams (Brit Marling). After
spending several years in jail she seeks redemption for killing a musician's
wife and child in a car crash, caused through staring at the new phenomenon.
Unaware of Rhoda's past, he befriends her. She then wins a competition
to fly to the planet, which she feels would help her assuage her guilt.
The storyline becomes even more far-fetched, with the final seconds of
the film a total cop-out.
