On the night news breaks of the discovery of a duplicate Earth, MIT student Rhoda (Marling) crashes her car, killing a family save music professor John Burroughs (Mapother). On her release from prison four years later, Rhoda bluffs her way into Burroughs’ life as a competition is launched to find the first visitor to Earth 2.
A small, personal indie with a huge cinematic and intellectual appetite. It may be too lo-fi for some tastes but it sparks the brain and moves the heart. It also introduces Marling as a bright new star — singular.
