Exclusive Clip: Never Let Me Go

Exclusive Clip: Never Let Me Go

Pre-Toronto, we’re happy to reveal a new, exclusive clip of Never Let Me Go (here’s TOH’s positive review). Director Mark Romanek and writer Alex Garland’s adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel features Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield as students of Hailsham boarding school, a mysterious institution set in an alternative past in Britain. The three struggle to define their existence and the nature of love after being confronted with a dark destiny.

The film premiered to polarized reaction–both raves and pans–at the Telluride Film Festival. Check it out yourself: after Toronto, it goes into limited release on September 15. It also opens the London Fest.

In the clip below, a schoolteacher (Sally Hawkins) tells her students that they have a “special” future planned for them. (She gets fired for this.)
