On the night when a planet similar to Earth is discovered, Brit Marling's Rhoda kills William Mapother's family in a car accident while trying to get a better look at the planet.
"Another Earth", a drama movie which won Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize at 2011 Sundance Film Festival, has got its first trailer. It begins with the discovery of a duplicate Earth, and moves to introduce its main characters, Rhoda Williams and John Burroughs, whose lives become irrevocably intertwined due to a tragic accident.
Brit Marling plays Rhoda, a bright young woman who is accepted into MIT's astrophysics program and aspires to explore the cosmos. Meanwhile, William Mapother portrays John, a brilliant composer who has just reached the pinnacle of his profession and is about to have a second child.
On the eve of the discovery of another Earth, Rhoda is sitting behind the wheel when she sees the planet and takes a risk by leaning out for a closer look. It leads to her crashing her car into a minivan and killing a family. She later grows close to the widower of the family, and enters an essay contest to "win a flight to EARTH 2."
