Karl's Review of Another Earth

We watched a bit of a sleeper movie and I feel the need to tell you about it.

Another Earth.

Here's the premise. Suddenly and without warning, another earth just like ours appears in the night sky. At first we don't know what to make of it until we finally make radio contact with it. Unfortunately for one person, the appearance of this twin of ours in the sky affects her life in a way I can't spoil for you. This is a science fiction story that puts away the science and focuses on the people. Just when you think you have it figured out, one final curve ball to your brain and it's over. It's one of those movies that will have you discussing the ending for hours. I loved it.

Any mention of completely disrupted tides, earthquakes etc? I'm betting both planets the same size in near orbit would cause a few disasters, just sayin'.
