The story about Rhoda and John, two people whose worlds collide after a tragic accident. 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.
The idea of a parallel planet/universe is not new but this is absolutely parallel. I wondered if they were going to explore anti-matter. There were a few moments of silliness. The 2 planets were shown to be getting considerably closer over a few years. Clearly a worrying situation which did not concern any of the characters. In fact anything which approached science had been dumbed down. The drama was good and the acting superb. Some quiet scenes were tense with suspense even though the background music was only moderately suggestive. As I recall the music was by fall on your sword. They were querky. The camera work was also querky and I enjoyed it. Lots of close ups of hands for example.
