August 5, 2019

It would always be difficult to adapt Kazuo Ishiguro's phenomenal novel 'Never Let Me Go' for the screen, but Alex Garland was uniquely well set up for the challenge. In this episode of The 21st Rewrite, we digest the profound impact that the novel had on us as readers, give our thoughts on which parts of the screenplay worked brilliantly and which could have been improved, and start to explore the key themes of this exceptional coming-of-age story and dystopian romance.
