New “Never Let Me Go” Clip

While it’s hard to accurately judge a film based on such a short clip (which you can view at Awards Daily, since I’m having embedding issues), Rachel Portman’s moody score sounds great and one could easily envision this as Knightley’s “Oscar Clip”.
And with the film’s release only weeks away, a few reviews have begun to trickle onto the web. Early word from the UK has been overwhelmingly positive, with The Daily Mail calling it “the most haunting film about love and death [they’ve] ever seen” and The Telegraph hailing it as “British film at its very best”. If critical reaction stateside is this rapturous, it will be interesting to see what film Fox Searchlight decides to promote most (since 127 Hours and Black Swan, both Searchlight films, are looking good for Oscar contention)
