Reviews

Amy Biancolli Houston Chronicle | October 08, 2010

Never Let Me Go is gorgeous. And depressing. It's exquisitely acted. And depressing. It's romantic, profound and superbly crafted, shot with the self-contained radiance of a snow globe. And it's depressing.

Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald | October 07, 2010

Never Let Me Go, director Mark Romanek's introspective adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro's novel, is a work of subtle beauty -- a melancholy meditation on the finality of life and the choices we make as our time shortens.

Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel | October 06, 2010

Lovely and melancholy, poignant and chilling, Never Let Me Go is an old school sci-fi dystopia with lovely, wistful performances that never quite overcome the fatalism that hangs over the whole affair.

Peter Rainer Christian Science Monitor | October 01, 2010

Never Let Me Go is strangely moving and mournful, but I wish more had been made of the beauty these people are relinquishing, if only as a counterweight to all that artful drear.

Rick Groen Globe and Mail | September 24, 2010

The emotional impact creeps up on the reader only gradually. Then, bam, it hits forcefully, memorably, and, yes, never lets us go.

Chris Vognar Dallas Morning News | September 24, 2010

The combination of social anguish and dark chill in Never Let Me Go packs a quietly devastating punch.

Peter Howell Toronto Star | September 24, 2010

It may rob the film of drama, but Romanek has erred on the side of quality, crafting a beautifully cast and artfully rendered allegory of lost youth and trampled innocence.
