Never Let Me Go Preview/Synopsis

Never Let me Go September 15

Directed by Mark Romanek ( One Hour Photo ) Starring Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightly, Andrew Garfield, Sally Hawkins, Charlotte Rampling. Written by Alex Garland ( 28 Days Later ) Cinematography by Indie Spirit nominee Adam Kimmel ( Capote ) Editing by Barney Pilling ( An Education ) and Original Score by Oscar winner Rachel Portman ( Emma, The Cider House Rules )

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 and writer Alex Garland bring Ishiguro’s hauntingly poignant and emotional story to the screen. Kathy (Mulligan), Tommy (Garfield) and Ruth (Knightley) 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.

Rated R for sexuality and nudity.

Oscar chances ? Very good. Strong possibilities for picture, screenplay and supporting actor and actress.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
