trailer break: ‘Never Let Me Go’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

I suspect that this is going to be one of those films that some people are going to deny is science fiction — it can’t be science fiction! it’s got drama and romance! and no spaceships or laser blasts! — or else they’re going to dismiss it because it’s “only” science fiction.

I hope I’m wrong. This looks beautiful: Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan! And it’s about time Andrew Garfield broke out. And I expect something great from Mark Romanek, who made the very intriguing One Hour Photo. The film was already generating Oscar buzz before the trailer was even released, which seems kind of ridiculous at this early stage, but that’s probably due to the fact that it’s based on a novel by Kazuo Ishiguro (who also wrote Remains of the Day).

In any event: It’s a science fiction movie for actual adults! Hooray!

Never Let Me Go opens in limited release in the U.S. on October 1; no Canadian or U.K. release dates have been announced.
