Special Schoolchildren

Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield, and Charlotte Rampling are the stars of the latest film by video director-turned-feature helmer Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo).

Now that is quite a cast, and Never Let Me Go sure looks like quite the stirrer – it’s an adaption of a Kazuo Ishiguro novel; he wrote The Remains of the Day.

I must say I found the
trailer to be rather intriguing. There’s a love triangle among the three young stars, who play lifelong friends who meet at a boarding school that’s just oh-so-mysterious, talk of “donations,” and lots and lots of questioning of the having of the soul.

To boot, it also looks like a beautifully photographed film. I really can’t wait for it to open this fall, and I’ll bet it’ll do well come awards season.
