PRESS STATEMENT FROM 20TH CENTURY FOX:
"After his stint in the much-celebrated film, The Social Network, Andrew Garfield stars in Never Let Me Go, with Carey Mulligan and Keira Knightley.
"Based on the novel by Kazuo Ishiguro, the movie centers on love and betrayal among childhood friends.
"Kathy (Mulligan), Tommy (Garfield) and Ruth (Knightley) are students at Hailsham, a very exclusive, very strange English boarding school. Kathy is an observer, Ruth an extrovert, while Tommy is an isolated boy who struggles creatively and is often the target of bullies.
"As they grow into young adults, they find that they have to come to terms with love they feel for each other, while preparing themselves for the haunting reality that awaits them.
"Garfield’s performance in the film has earned for him multiple wins including a Breakthrough Actor Award at the Hollywood Awards, Supporting Actor (runner-up) at the Boston Film Critics Award and Ensemble Performance at Palm Springs Film Fest.
"In interviews, Garfield has said it was the film’s message and dystopian theme that convinced him to take on the role of Tommy.
"Never Let Me Go is from 20th Century Fox and distributed by Warner Bros. It will be screened exclusively at Ayala Cinemas on March 2."
