Mark Romanek’s adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s acclaimed novel of the same name has been garnering a lot of early buzz and will screen at the 35th Toronto International Film Festival this week, before opening the 54th London Film Festival in October.
Never Let Me Go features performances from Carey Mulligan, Charlotte Rampling, Keira Knightley, Sally Hawkins, Andrew Garfield and Andrea Riseborough.
