Never Let Me Go by Mark Romanek, 2010 (R)

with Carey Mulligan (An Education, Shame), Andrew Garfield (The Social Network), Keira Knightley (Anna Karenina, A Dangerous Method), Isobel Meikle-Small, Ella Purnell, Charlie Rowe, Charlotte Rampling (Melancholia), Sally Hawkins (An Education), Kate Bowes Renna

Based on Kazuo Ishiguro's acclaimed novel, this sci-fi drama from director Mark Romanek is centered on thirtysomething Kathy (Carey Mulligan), who reflects on her time spent at Hailsham, an English boarding school, alongside classmates Ruth (Keira Knightley) and Tommy (Andrew Garfield). Born for an unusual reason, the three struggle with their destiny and their love triangle. Charlotte Rampling plays headmistress Miss Emily.

Carey Mulligan... I discovered her in "An Education", followed her in "Drive", finally in a different genre in "Shame". She's really good. I have more conflicts with Keira Knightley which I discovered and liked in "Pride and Prejudice" but then was deceived by her choices and last interpretation in "A Dangerous Method". Finally, the surprise came from Andrew Garfield that was in "The Social Network" and was metamorphosed in this movie into an amazingly sensitive character. The cast is really good, the story intriguing, to the point where you would like to know so much more about those boarding school which seems so realistic. I reminded me, not to spoil the surprise - oops -, to "The Island". Fascinating.
