Dan O'Neill70 - If you are in happy mood and want to keep that going, then donít check out Never Let Me Go, because it is sad, empty (in many ways), and doesnít have any real moments of shining suns in the sky, but it is also beautiful to look at, a very moody piece that can really put you into its setting, and features a fine young cast that does a great job with all that their given.
