Paul Rudd stars in this witty and highly relatable comedy about that one family member who is always just a little bit behind the curve.

Another Earth

Another Earth is a 2011 American science fiction drama film directed by Mike Cahill in his feature film debut.

Their intimate drama plays out against the astounding discovery of Earth 2, a parallel world that poses provocative and fascinating possibilities.

Does a new Earth mean a chance at another life? Another destiny? Another self? “ANOTHER EARTH is science-fiction at its best” (The Hollywood Reporter) — with a mind-bending surprise ending that you will never forget.
