Now, before I get into how good the film is, I’m going to make a statement. I haven’t seen the original version of this film. As much as I attempted to find it before this version came out, I never did. But the advantage of that is that I can see True Grit as a movie in its own right, and not as a remake.
It’s hard to explain Never Let Me Go. It’s set in an alternative world to 20th century Britain; the main differences of which become the crux of the plot and the heart of the story. Therefore it would be necessary to reveal these differences to you to give this review some context. But the problem is that these differences are kept from you at the beginning and one of the great pleasures to be had from this film are discovering them throughout. Taking in the little drips of information and using your own mind to piece them together, creating context for the characters behaviour, building the world around them inside your own head.

I mean no disrespect in saying this, but Australia isn’t known for its cinema. So when an Australian film gets a global release that very fact leads you to believe one of two things. That either one of the very few stars (Peter Weir) have released a new film, or that you are in for something very special indeed. I say that, but thanks to critical types falling in love with films that just aren’t that special, I don’t know where I stand when a film does well on the festival circuit. I have fallen in love as much as I have exploded in a fit of rage. This is all because of the nature of world cinema and its tendency to be divisive, what I am saying is critical acclaim and adulation aren’t always signs that something is going be good just because the critics said so. The latest film to fall into the canon is the Australian film Animal Kingdom, a winner at the Sundance Film Festival 2010.

Imagine waking up in a dark surrounding, not knowing where you are or how you got there – well that is exactly what happens to the main character Paul Conroy in this film played by Ryan Reynolds.
The film starts with some interesting yet tedious typography and then the screen is plunged into darkness, this feels like ages but in reality it is for about a minute. Just when you think the film has stopped working you hear a cough and some noises. Then a light comes on via a zippo lighter and you see a somewhat distraught looking man.
