So Mark Romanek’s adaptation of Kazuo Ishuguro’s critically acclaimed novel ‘Never Let Me Go’ is out in cinemas next Friday and you should all go and see it because it’s brilliant and it will make you cry like a sad baby. BUT more importantly you should go and see it for Izzy and Charlie’s wonderful performances. Not content with acting their pants off in DISCO, they give astounding performances in NLMG along with Ella Purnell, owning the first act of the film and carrying a huge amount of the story on their young shoulders.
Their grown up counter parts Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield and Keira Knightley are all excellent too and Ishiguro himself has declared that one day we’ll look back on this film as a piece that houses the very best of new british acting talent. Having had the pleasure of seeing it last year at the Brighton Film Festival and working with Izz and Charlie, I couldn’t agree more.
Check out the trailer:
And a magnificently eloquent and mature interview from Ella and Izzy:
