'Never Let Me Go' filmed on location in St Andrews, Scotland

The University of St Andrews, Scotland’s oldest University and the third oldest in Britain has been used for soon to be released 'Never Let Me Go'. One of the University’s newer buildings, the Andrew Melville Hall which was designed by renowned architect James Stirling and built in the 1960s, was used in the upcoming film adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel starring Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield (pictured above).

Directed by Mark Romanek ('One Hour Photo') and adapted for the screen by Alex Garland ('The Beach', '28 Days Later'), the film follows three friends from their childhood in the idyllic surroundings of a British boarding school, through adulthood as their relationships change. Not all is as it seems and as the friends grow-up, the foundations of their lives are turned upside down. NSSP member FifeScreen & TayScreen, the screen commission for Fife and Tayside, were very happy to assist the production when they came to film in the area.

'Never Let Me Go' opens in UK cinemas on Friday 11th February. It will be showing at Dundee Contemporary Arts from Friday 18th February - Thursday 3rd March.
