From time to time Hollywood surprises us all with some great novel adaptations, indeed. That’s exactly the case with an upcoming sci-fi drama thriller based on a Kazuro Ishiguro’s novel Never Let Me Go.
Never Let Me Go
And, when you have a novel that’s already being described as “a remarkable story of love, loss and hidden truths”, then you definitely expect to see a movie that will help you find the answer to that fundamental question – what makes us human?
Fox Searchlight has moved Never Let Me Go from October 1, 2010 to September 15, 2010.
You can start your research on September 15, 2010, because that’s exactly when Never Let Me Go hits theaters, but until then, check out the rest of this report for more story details…
“Never Let Me Go is narrated by a 31-year old woman named Kathy. She’s remembering her days at Hailsham, a boarding school where creativity and health were emphasized. None of the children have parents or surnames.
She has rekindled friendships with Ruth and Tommy, friends from her Hailsham days. The three of them find they don’t fit into society, that they’re not been prepared for a normal life.
The children of Hailsham are all clones, bred and raised solely to be organ donors once they’re adults. Kathy and Ruth both fight over Tommy’s attention, and he has fits of temper. The three of them, though, agree to hold onto each other forever, unsure of the future that awaits them.”
Director Mark Romanek together with writer Alex Garland and DNA Films bring Ishiguro’s hauntingly poignant and emotional story to the screen, with some extraordinary cast.
Movie stars Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan as Kathy, Andrew Garfield as Tommy, and gorgeous Keira Knightley as Ruth.
If you haven’t seen the Never Let Me Go trailer, you can watch it now.
We’re going to finish our report with (by our opinion) one of the best reviews of this story: “This extraordinary and, in the end, rather frighteningly clever story isn’t about cloning, or being a clone, at all.
It’s about why we don’t explode, why we don’t just wake up one day and go sobbing and crying down the street, kicking everything to pieces out of the raw, infuriating, completely personal sense of our lives never having been what they could have been.”
Make sure you check out Never Let Me Go on September 15, 2010! You won’t regret it!
