“Never Let Me Go” clips reveals previously secret plot point

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Opening in four theaters last weekend, Mark Romanek’s “Never Let Me Go” performed wonderfully, pulling in an average of $27,000 per theater and giving Fox Searchlight a strong platform on which to expand.

Based on Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel, the films stars Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan as childhood friends who grow up in an idyllic English boarding home but serve a greater purpose. For a while, it seemed like the “purpose” was being kept secret. But a new clip released to Yahoo Movies! explains in greater detail a key plot point.

Avoid it if you want to go into the film unspoiled. Curious folks, click away.

Romanek has created a science-fiction story that’s rooted in reality and draws from the heart, not our imaginations. I’m jokingly referring to “Never” as “Blade Lovers.” Because it asks controversial emotional questions, “Never” deserves deeper consideration. You should get the chance soon, as the film plans to add more theaters over the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
