DVD: Never Let Me Go, For retail & rental (20th Century Fox)

This is an evocative, lyrical adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro's acclaimed novel, with a subtly sinister atmosphere, and sensitive performances from Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield and Keira Knightley.

But putting the story onscreen ultimately exposes the fundamental absurdity of its science-fiction conceit. I won't give that conceit away here, but it's impossible to believe that anyone would go along with it.
