Never Let Me Go

Disclaimer - This is not a proper review so read away, I’m avoiding spoiling it for you!

Firstly, I love Carey Mulligan. She has something special and rare, elegance, a likeability factor that just sets her apart form anyone else in Hollywood. I dare to say, she is, more than any other young actresses, a modern Audrey Hepburn. It’s not the fact she’s beautiful (many others are so much more beautiful than her - including Keira), it’s something else, it’s her smile and the fact the she plays every role in a quiet, yet convincing and relatable way.

Secondly I thought Never Let me Go was lovely and incredibly sad, the kind of movie that breaks your heart and makes you feel grateful for the world you’re leaving in while also pointing out that you are an ungrateful asshole for standing in the way of your own happiness. I felt like that, I felt I have it easy and don't appreciate enough the choices I have.

Memories, even your most precious ones, fade surprisingly quickly. But I don’t go along with that. The memories I value most, I don’t ever see them fading.

I’ll also say Andrew Garfield and Keira Knightley were wonderful in this touching little movie that lingers with you long after it has ended. The soundtrack of this movie still haunts me, it’s amazing.

You just have to take two minutes and listen to this song!

I’m a little bummed I didn’t read the book first (Never Let me Go is a movie adaptation of the novel with the same name written by Kazuo Ishiguro), but it’s on my (love) to do list as soon as I get my hands on it.

OMG this movie broke my heart! I wanted to read the book first but someone told me it was too cold, so I checked the movie and boy..the scenes and even the simple concept.. the ending..the fact that there is no hope to live, all in all it is a beautiful bitterness and the film was very expressive, the characters believable and well-played..simply amazing!
