‘Never Let Me Go’: Why This Early Andrew Garfield Film Is a Metaphor For Our Own Reality

Science fiction films are unique in that they tend to be either big budget spectacles, or quieter character-focused tales that use science and technology to make an argument or observation about the world in which we live. Never Let Me Go is one of the latter. The 2010 film based on the novel by Kazuo Ishiguro doesn't feature any of the hallmarks of what typical moviegoers think of as science fiction. There are no spaceships, intergalactic chase sequences, or alien monsters that come to wreak havoc on Earth. Instead, director Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo) and screenwriter Alex Garland (Ex Machina) choose to focus the film on the emotions of its characters to create a somber (and heart-wrenching) meditation on grief, acceptance, and whether we actually have control over our fate — not to mention an incredibly interesting use of clones as a metaphor.

On 'Under the Banner of Heaven,' Andrew Garfield Offers a Vision of Faith Rare on TV

The new FX detective series based on a real case, Under the Banner of Heaven, was a show that arrived with a high degree of skepticism surrounding it. Being based on the meticulous and masterfully written nonfiction book of the same name by acclaimed author Jon Krakauer set a very high bar for what this story could be, ensuring that it had its work cut out for it. Not only did said book cover a horrifying crime with detailed dedication, but it also dug into hundreds of years of history which are then put in conversation with the present. How could a miniseries ever capture what Krakauer did in his writing? Well, it can’t and smartly doesn’t try. Instead, it creates a way to tread its own path and stand out from a crowded field of true-crime adaptations.

Under the Banner of Heaven's Andrew Garfield Reveals the 'Weirdly Self-Sacrificial' Meaning of Pyre's Priesthood Speech

[The following contains spoilers for Episode 3 of Under the Banner of Heaven. Read at your own risk!]. Jeb Pyre (Andrew Garfield) is one of the more progressive and feminist characters in Under the Banner of Heaven, though when he's being compared to fundamentalists who can be driven to murderous rage when a woman dares to want a job of her own, we admit the bar isn't that high. However, there is a moment in Episode 3 of the FX on Hulu limited series that makes you question just how much Jeb believes in the "a woman must serve her husband" teachings of the LDS faith.
