Never Let Me Go

First off, I want to say a huge thanks to all of you who checked out Project RISHI and liked it on Facebook. Honestly, I wasn't expecting such a flood of response, but I am so incredibly grateful to each and every one of you.

I watched this movie the other night on a whim. I didn't know it was based on a book, actually, but I might give this book a shot, because the movie adaptation was absolutely stunning. Funnily enough, it fell right in with my dystopia thing, which I didn't know going into it! The story is a romantic drama set to the background of ethical complications in an alternately developed (maybe not totally dystopian) society. One of the things I loved about this movie was the incredible subtlety with which the relationships were handled. I have a hard time with romcoms because as fun as they are, it never feels like there's any depth to the relationships. In this one, it's really a nod to the talent of the actors (Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield, and Keira Knightley) that I could feel every little emotion the characters went through. The premise was new to me, but well thought out and executed. There's a bit of a twist at the end that's not entirely unpredictable, but emotional all the same. Overall, I would highly recommend this movie!

    1. Hm...weird. I posted on my laptop, but I can see it on my work computer. Perhaps blogger is being glitchy again?

  2. i am a rom-com girl all the way, but i agree with you -- rom-com relationships don't have depth like the relationships in this movie. this was a really good movie, quite heavy to watch, but definitely brilliant. :)
