Never Let Me Go

Title: Never Let Me Go
Directed by: Mark Romanek
Starring: Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield and Keira Knightley 

One thing, that annoyed me about the advertising of this film, is that it has primarily been advertised as a soppy love story. Even though it does involve the love triangle of the three main characters, it is a lot more than just that, and doesn't even concentrate on that aspect that much. I'm a huge sucker for anything dystopia, as I've said before, and it's so refreshing to see a dystopian film, thats not necessarily marketed as one. 

The three principle cast members were great, particularly Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield. Garfield has easily become my favourite rising star at the moment, with this, The Social Network and soon to be the remake of Spiderman. 

Anyway, I thought that this was a very interesting and understated film, and it's a shame that it hasn't been put up for many awards because of it's competition.
