    Critical Consensus: "Another Earth" Edges "American Sleepover" For Pick of The Week

    In a tight race for the top rated film on criticWIRE, Mike Cahill's "Another Earth" edged out David Robert Mitchell's "The Myth of the American Sleepover" as the "pick of the week." "Earth" - a sci-fi drama being released this Friday via Fox Searchlight - was written by Cahill and Brit Marling, who is also the film's star and generally regarded as one of 2011's big indie breakouts. Marling plays Rhoda, a twenty-something on the brink of getting accepted to MIT. Just as she overhears on her car radio that a new planet has appeared in the sky, she inadvertently crashes into a van and kills two-thirds of the family on board. Cut to four years ...

    INTERVIEW | "Another Earth" Triple Threat Brit Marling Has (Finally) Arrived

    The 2011 Sundance Film Festival has played host to a slew of fresh faces with multiple films in the lineup. British up-and-comer Juno Temple appeared in "Kaboom" and "Little Birds;" the other Olsen sister, Elizabeth Olsen, had lead roles in "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and "Silent House;" and Kyle Gallner, came to Park City to hype his work in "Red State" and "Little Birds." But none can hold a candle to blond, brainy beauty Brit Marling, who quickly emerged as this year's Sundance marvel by arriving with two critically acclaimed films under her belt (sci-fi romance "Another Earth" and the tense thriller "Sound of My Voice"), both of which she ...
