I'll usually love anything Fox Searchlight puts out and that's certainly the case here. Mark Romanek himself (via HeyUGuys) debuted this new official poster for Never Let Me Go, the upcoming indie drama starring Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man!), Keira Knightley and the always lovely Carey Mulligan. So get this, although you've all probably seen the trailer, did you know this is actually a sci-fi film? Yea, they don't want to reveal much, but there's a twist to it and it may throw a few of you off if you're just hoping for a period romance. Additionally, it was just announced today that this will be playing at the Toronto Film Festival, so congrats!
As children, Ruth, Kathy & Tommy, spend their childhood at a seemingly idyllic boarding school. As they grow into adults, they find they have to come to terms with the strength of the love they feel for each other.
Never Let Me Go is directed by Chicago-born filmmaker Mark Romanek, of only One Hour Photo previously, but he's also directed numerous music videos. The script was written by British writer Alex Garland, who is Danny Boyle's writer, known for The Beach, 28 Days Later and Sunshine. This is based on Kazuo Ishiguro's novel of the same name. Fox Searchlight is bringing Never Let Me Go to theaters starting September 15th.
