Short, but exciting news, by way of director Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo). The man’s new film, Never Let Me Go, written by Alex Garland (28 Days Later…, Sunshine) and starring Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield, has a release date: October 1st, 2010.
Romanek announced as much on his Twitter account:
NEVER LET ME GO is finally done and has a release date. It will appear in select cities starting October 1. Trailer on its way very soon.
I’m very excited for this film. Here’s the synopsis via IMDB:
An alternate history story of a woman who, as she reflects on her private school years in the English countryside, reunites with her two friends to face the dark secrets tied to their communal past.
Garland is a skilled writer with a penchant for science-fiction. With the visually-skilled Romanek at his side, not to mention the mad abundance of young acting talent, this one could/should be one to remember.
Carey recently did a New York Times “T Magazine” Screen Test and you can view it right here. She talks about “killer lines and a near death experience.” I’ll get caps up soon.
The Playlist recently attended a screening of Carey’s film ‘Never Let Me Go‘ and had this to say about Carey’s performance:
IMDB lists the story line as this : “An alternate history story of a woman who, as she reflects on her private school years in the English countryside, reunites with her two friends to face the dark secrets tied to their communal past.” That being said, the performances and dynamic between the three friends, (Knightley, Garfield and Mulligan) are beautifully executed. Mulligan stood out to me as just so endearing and believable.
The article also included a few photos of Carey filming ‘Never Let Me Go‘ alongside co-star Keira Knightley and others. The photos are small but I just love this one!
