The Plot: On the night of the discovery of a duplicate planet in the solar system, an ambitious young student and an accomplished composer cross paths in a tragic accident.

THE BUZZ: Undeniably fresh and thinky, we found this buzzing cerebral drama weighed down by implausible character choices that took away from the narrative’s overall sense of wonder. That said, as Brit Marling’s career takes off (she and Elizabeth Olsen were the toast of Sundance 2011), we hope she continues to make films with Mike Cahill,, who directed, co-wrote, produced, filmed, and edited Another Earth.
