“A small movie that validates its high-concept aspirations.”~Jesse Cataldo, Slant Magazine
Aroview: The appearance of a parallel Earth hidden behind the Sun poses deep personal and philosophical questions for a troubled student in this superlative science-fiction drama.
Set in the aftermath of a fatal car accident, the astrophysical elements add a satisfying metaphorical dimension to recognizably real events marked by grief, guilt and redemption. Co-writer/actress Brit Marling and partner-director Mike Cahill have crafted an emotionally plausible and sustained journey that climaxes with a perfectly ambiguous denouement. For attentive viewers, it's a film to carry with you long after the credits roll.
