Fresh online at Imp Awards are three new character posters for Never Let Me Go and jolly beautiful they are to, flaunting the film’s none-more-now cast members Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield and Keira Knightley resplendent in a blue-tinged mist, as well as a one-sheet that’s similarly striking.
Mark Romanek’s take on Kazuo Ishiguro’s acclaimed novel, adaptated by Alex Garland, is the curtain-raiser at this year’s London Film Festival and promises to be one of the LFF highlights. Judging by the trailer, it’s safe to expect one of the year’s most poignant and cerebral sci-fis, exploring the big stuff: love, death and what it means to be human.
The posters feature Kathy (Mulligan), Ruth (Knightley) and Tommy (Garfield), pupils at the mysterious Hailsham boarding school who are being prepared for a shocking fate (and it’s not summer school with George Lineker). LFF ticket holders can catch Never Let Me Go on October 13, while the rest of us will have to wait until January 14.
