Keira Knightley in Never Let Me GoThe first trailer for Never Let Me Go, starring Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan, has arrived online and it looks dark, sinister... and really rather good.

The film is based on the novel of the same name by Kazuo Ishiguro (who also wrote The Remains of the Day) and has been developed for the screen by Alex Garland, who wrote The Beach, 28 Days Later and Sunshine. It centres around a mysterious boarding school in dystopian Britain, which houses strange pupils and an even stranger secret.

Mulligan plays Kathy, the main protagonist who, as an adult, looks back on her childhood raised in the school. Knightley plays Ruth, Kathy's best friend, and other supporting actors include Andrew Garfield (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), Sally Hawkins (Happy Go Lucky) and Charlotte Rampling as the headmistress.
