Another Earth.

Over Easter I watched Another Earth. It’s a movie which my husband dismissed early as being too slow and which didn’t mesh with my reasons for choosing it (science fiction, alternative realities, etc) But I was struck by several things, not the least of which were the beautiful images of Earth2 in our sky. The early sequence which showed some time lapse footage of Jupiter was also beautiful.
Have tried to find something like these, but the closest I could get were these NASA images:

LUNA – Workspace.

LUNA – Workspace.

(admittedly there’s nothing like this second one in the movie, I just like it!)
I also very much liked the way in which the alternatives to the main character’s existence weren’t spelt out. It was obvious how there lives may have gone, but this was never explicitly stated.
Very moving, if not at all what I expected.
