Director: Mark Romanek. Cast: Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield, Keira Knightley, Charlotte Rampling, Sally Hawkins. 103 min. Rated R. UK/USA. Drama/Romance.
This story, written by Kazuo Ishiguro (Remains of the Day), is actually a sci-fi, but the writer and director solely keep the melodramatic/romantic aftermath of the sci-fi in the forefront for a very wise reason: the science of the story has so many logical holes, if the three-way love story was not used as a strong distraction, the movie would fall apart. I'd rather not give away the sci-fi elements (other than it involves organ transplant), but in general, despite the seamless directing, at the end I felt somewhat betrayed. For a better movie on the same themes, watch Moon.
