Synopsis from DVD Cover:
Kathy (Mulligan), Ruth (Knightley) and Tommy (Garfield) are best friends who grow up together at an English boarding school with a chilling secret. Based on the acclaimed novel by Kazuo Ishiguro (The Remains Of The Day), Never Let Me Go is an intriguing exploration of hope and humanity.

Quick Review:
Going into Mark Romanek's "Never Let Me Go," I assumed that it would be another typical romantic drama. But after the first few minutes, I realized that this movie is anything but typical as it introduced a group of kids at a seemingly normal boarding school who learn that the boarding school is anything but normal and that they are on the wrong side of a medical break-through that the whole world is celebrating.

The story focuses on Kathy (Carey Mulligan), Tommy (Andrew Garfield) and Ruth (Keira Knightley) as children and then as teenagers living on a farm. There's an obvious connection between Kathy and the very shy and reclusive Tommy, but Ruth won't allow for that relationship to flourish and decides to steal Tommy for herself. This sets up the rest of the film as we watch the characters deal with jealousy, love and curiosity, while also struggle with the sad realization that their fate is sealed and the inevitable is coming.

"Never Let Me Go" is a very unique film in the sense that it has elements of sci-fi, but it's not a sci-fi movie. And while it takes place in the past, it's also about a possible disturbing future. The entire thing is wrapped in a beautiful package filled with thought-provoking topics and more heart that anything else out there.

The bonus material, however, could have been better. There's "The Secrets of Never Let Me Go," which is a making-of featurette filled with interviews and behind-the-scene footage. The rest is beautiful artwork, especially Romanek's "On-Set Photography." Since the film deals with such heavy topics, I was hoping that the bonus material delve deeper into them. Unfortunately, that's not the case.

In Conclusion:
To put it simply, "Never Let Me Go" is the best film of 2010. Mulligan, Garfield and Knightley have never been better, and it's a disgrace that this masterpiece didn't get a bigger marketing push or get the recognition from the Academy Awards that it deserves.
