SYNOPSIS

See the film generating award worthy buzz for three of today’s most influential and talented young stars in Never Let Me Go, from Fox Searchlight Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Adapted from highly acclaimed author Kazuo Ishiguro’s award-winning novel and directed by Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo), Never Let Me Go is a beautifully moving film featuring dynamic performances by Academy Award-nominees Carey Mulligan (Wall Street 2, An Education), Keira Knightley (Pirates of the Caribbean franchise) and newcomer Andrew Garfield (The Social Network, The Other Bolelyn Girl).

Never Let Me Go is a powerful story revolving around Kathy (Mulligan), Ruth (Knightley) and Tommy (Garfield), three best friends who grow up together at an English boarding school with a chilling secret.  When they learn the shocking truth – that they are genetically engineered clones destined to be organ donors – they embrace their fleeting chances to live and love.

Special features include “The Secrets of Never Let Me Go,” an exclusive 30-minute behind the scenes look at the making of the film featuring the cast and crew as they chronicle the journey from book to the big screen.

Never Let Me Go will be available on Blu-ray and DVD for the suggested retail prices of $39.99 US / $49.98 Canada and $29.98 US / $42.98 Canada, respectively.
