Book Description

6 Jan 2011

In his highly acclaimed novel Never Let Me Go, Kazuo Ishiguro (The Remains of the Day) created a remarkable story of love, loss and hidden truths. In it he posed the fundamental question: What makes us human? Now director Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo), writer Alex Garland and DNA Films bring Ishiguro's hauntingly poignant and emotional story to the screen.

Kathy (Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan, An Education), Tommy (Andrew Garfield, Boy A, Red Riding) and Ruth (Oscar nominee Keira Knightley, Pride & Prejudice, Atonement) live in a world and a time that feel familiar to us, but are not quite like anything we know. They spend their childhood at Hailsham, a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. When they leave the shelter of the school and the terrible truth of their fate is revealed to them, they must also confront the deep feelings of love, jealousy and betrayal that threaten to pull them apart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Profound 18 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback
I was ill prepared for the strong effect this film/screenplay would have on me.

It is rare that you go to the cinema and are confronted with a film that forces you to rethink your life, your cosy existence and the moral framework within which you live.

I feel this film/script has been let down by the marketing. It's been marketed as a love story. Many men I know have been put off from seeing it because they think it's a chick flick. Nothing could be further from the truth.

There is a (compelling) love story but the premise is much larger than that.

This film asks what is it to be human? At what cost life? And at what cost death?

I have always justified eating meat by saying that but for being farmed by us the animals we eat would never exist in the first place. This script demolishes any such argument.

In this script humans create life artifically for their own benefit and longevity. But at what point do the creators become the monsters?

In this script the humans, the creators, become the monsters (feeding off the lives they have created in order to preserve their own) and the Frankensteins (the created) become the humans with souls, hearts, dignity, creativity, consciences and morals.

Apart from direct speech the script (as in the book) is narrated in the first person by a character called Kathy who quietly and calmy leads us into a subject too horrific to contemplate.

Everybody should see this film, read this book and/or read this script.
