I love these wonderful people. Just the way they can express themselves and how they’re so connected to each other - both on and off screen. I knew Andrew from The Social Network when I watched Never Let Me Go, but not Carey. She made me fall in love with her and her brilliant acting. The thing they said about crying was so true because I am a very sensitive person when it comes to drama movies, so it was a bit odd that I didn’t cry a river while watching it. Never Let Me Go is a different kind of drama; where you are completely surrounded by an upset story and yet you burst into tears in its last 10 minutes. And then you can’t stop it.
My reaction to this movie was basically the same as Kazuo: I didn’t want to talk to anyone afterwards. Good thing I watched past 10pm, so I went to bed to think all by myself when the credits ended. And my dad.. he stood still for about 5 minutes, crying, just trying to understand everything he had just seen. It was weird. Next morning he was all about long theories and stuff.
I should write a review.
I love these two, and this film. Anyone who has seen it should watch this. It dives deep into all the different facets of it, and there are so many facets. A film like this is rare, one that sparks a conversation that starts in one place and so effortlessly moves to other seemingly disparate ones from there. It’s really rich.
Also, I’m a little obsessed with Carey Mulligan’s speaking voice. She should do books on tape. And we all know how I feel about Andrew Garfield. I love it here when he gets all English and starts apologizing incessantly.
