Ishiguro's Story for London Film Fest

One of the films I'm looking forward to is the screen version of Kazuo Ishiguro's novel about the implications of human cloning - Never Let Me Go.  The screen version stars Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield and is apparently set to open this year's London Film Festival.

David Gritten in The Telegraph writes :
I make this confident prediction because I’ve already seen the film selected to open the LFF. Never Let Me Go is a perfect example of British film at its very best; it’s a sombre piece of work, yet its sheer quality will lift the gloomiest of spirits.
I so loved the book, and this trailer has really whetted my appetite for the movie version :

Perhaps to some - I loved it.

We ain't never going to see eye-to-eye KayKay, and maybe that's a lot of the fun of it.
