GMC Day 13: Never Let Me Go (2010)

Keira Knightly, Carey Mulligan

Did you ever see the movie The Island with Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson? If so, you can go ahead and skip this movie. It's pretty much the same thing, except with British people (whoops, it seems Ewan McGregor is Scottish. Whatever, you know what I mean).

If not, what you will get is a wannabe depressing, not very creative sci-fi-ish movie in which there are so many plot holes you find yourself yelling at the characters through the screen instead of wondering what is going to happen next.

I chose this movie because my absolute favorite actress is Keira Knightly and I am also preferential toward Carrie Mulligan. However, the casting of Andrew Garfield as a guy both women are after is not only difficult to fathom, but unpleasant to look at scene after scene. I figure if a movie is going to have a crappy plot, it could at least have attractive people to look at. That's why pornography is a billion dollar industry, right?

Final word: Someone recommended this movie to me. I won't do you the same injustice.
