Mark Romanek’s Never Let Me Go continues to prove that it’s a contender for Awards Season. The trailer showed exactly how calm and desperate the entire thing might be, and Romanek’s history points to the movie being soul-crushingly depressing.
Fortunately, that depression comes with a British accent, so it’s not quite so hard to take.
Scratch that. Any sentiment of sweetness is blown out of the water by this clip featuring Kiera Knightley, a not-at-all-veiled threat against Carey Mulligan’s character, and what looks like the creepiest time possible to kiss another girl on the lips.
Check it out after the jump.
I can feel spiders crawling up my arms and legs. I can also feel the very real sensation that I should never, ever try to steal Kiera Knightley’s boyfriend.
Never Let Me Go is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Kazuo Ishiguro and features Sally Hawkins and Andrew Garfield alongside the two young ladies featured in the clip.
Because God hates Britain, the film won’t be there (unless you’ve got London Film Festival passes) until January, but the US gets it in limited released in just two weeks.
Damn, this movie looks good.
