Intriguing trailer for the big screen adaptation of the novel by Kazuo Ishiguro (The Remains of the Day) directed by Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo) from a screenplay written by Alex Garland (Sunshine, 28 Days Later..., The Beach). It's a drama about love, loss and hidden truths. Three people in their twenties (Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield, Keira Knightley) live in a world and a time that feel familiar to us, but are not quite like anything we know. They spend their childhood at Hailsham, a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. When they leave the shelter of the school they must confront the deep feelings of love, jealousy and betrayal that threaten to pull them apart. Also part of the cast are Charlotte Rampling and Sally Hawkins.
