Update: Never Let Me Go trailer online
Never Let Me Go is the adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro's novel (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com) which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize, directed by Mark Romanek, adapted by Alex Garland, and starring Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield. It reads as quite a line-up, and the trailer looks emotional and inspiring.
What I do like, and this is very relevant for two of the trailers I've been having a go at today, is that it doesn't give away too much. Even though you can probably guess at the central core of the story, there's no mention of it and the trailer focuses on the main characters and their relationships.
It's a wonderful trailer for Never Let Me Go, and with the cast list, director and writer, I'm more than keen to see it now.
Here's a blurb for the film:
As children, Ruth, Kathy and Tommy, spend their childhood at a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. As they grow into young adults, they find that they have to come to terms with the strength of the love they feel for each other, while preparing themselves for the haunting reality that awaits them.
You can see the trailer for Never Let Me Go over at The Guardian who have the exclusive. What do you think? Can anyone who has read the book comment on how it looks? I haven't myself.
Update: The trailer is now available right here:
