The reviews for Never let me Go have been out. There has been only one mixed review in the midst of all the good reviews. It is based on the famed book by Kazuo Ishiguro of the same name. The film has some beautiful imagery, which has been done well by the director who is known for his work in music videos and the One Hour photo debut film starring Robin Williams.
Here is a small synopsis of the film via Slashfilm.
In his highly acclaimed novel NEVER LET ME GO, Kazuo Ishiguro (THE REMAINS OF THE DAY) created a remarkable story of love, loss and hidden truths. In it he posed the fundamental question: What makes us human? Now director Mark Romanek (ONE HOUR PHOTO), writer Alex Garland and DNA Films bring Ishiguro’s hauntingly poignant and emotional story to the screen. Kathy (Oscar® nominee Carey Mulligan, AN EDUCATION), Tommy (Andrew Garfield, BOY A, RED RIDING) and Ruth (Oscar® nominee Keira Knightley, PRIDE & PREJUDICE, ATONEMENT) live in a world and a time that feel familiar to us, but are not quite like anything we know. They spend their childhood at Hailsham, a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. When they leave the shelter of the school and the terrible truth of their fate is revealed to them, they must also confront the deep feelings of love, jealousy and betrayal that threaten to pull them apart.
Never Let Me Go starts to hit theaters in this next week, on Sept 15.
