Film Review: Never Let Me Go - Mark Romanek

September 15, 2010 (USA)
Director: Mark Romanek
Screenplay: Alex Garland
**** - 4 Stars
Never Let Me Go directed by Mark Romanek and starring Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield is the film adaptation of the book of the same name by Kazuo Ishiguro.
This film follows the story of Kathy (Carey Mulligan), Ruth (Keira Knightley) and Tommy (Andrew Garfield); children who are created to be organ donors their whole lives until they eventually die (usually after their fourth donation).
I have to say, after watching this film, I cried for a good 20 minutes. It is heart-wrenchingly moving and I loved it. It was different to see Keira Knightley play a supporting role and a character you don't really like but I didn't enjoy it any less because of that.
This film is supremely well made, well acted and tugs on the heart-strings. Giving us hope and facing us with impossible situations throughout the story. I loved this film tremendously and give it 4/5 stars.
I recommend that everyone watch this. It will truly help you appreciate how lucky you are to have people in your life that you love and care for and that love and care for you. It also helps us appreciate our lives and how lucky we are to have a life and to be living. This film is truly beautiful and heart-wrenching all at once.
Please watch this film if you haven't already and tell me what you think down below.
Lots of love for now.
See you all soon.
