Re: The Child in Time

A question for those who have read the book: is it a shameless tear-jerker or a kind of, uhm, meaningful... tear-jerker? :D

Re: The Child in Time

I haven't read the book...
But I do hope Benedict wouldn't be involved in anything crass.

Re: The Child in Time

@ewige: It is no tear-jerker at all. A very complex story touching a lot of subjects, childhood and family being important. It is also a bit of a dystopian novel although not in such an obvious way as e.g. "Brave New World". 

@bb: Not at all.

Re: The Child in Time

I haven't read the book, but I'm looking forward to it, I do like sad things though... 

And shamelessly... Ben is looking good, isn't he?

Thank you, Susi. I like all kinds of dystopian novels

Re: The Child in Time

It is quite subtle but all the more believable, I think. 

And, yes, he looks great. I wonder if he is wearing his own clothes. And they seem to be in a hurry or very keen, even shooting throughout the weekend. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: The Child in Time

I remember when I saw the images and gifs I didn't realize it was from a film until I saw them here on the forum, so it's either his own clothes or just that the style of the character is similar to his own.

Subtle dystopia are cool. Never Let Me Go was kind of a subtle dystopia, too.

Re: The Child in Time

"Never let me go" is a great novel by one of my favourite authors. And the film is also very good.

Re: The Child in Time

Kazuo Ishiguro wrote Never Let Me Go. The same author as The Remains of the Day, if you've heard of that.

Re: The Child in Time

That's right.
Yes, not read...but think I at least saw some of the film of Remains of the day.

Re: The Child in Time

I've read them, but I've yet to see the film of Never Let Me Go - it's on my to-watch list!   I preferred the book of The Remains of the Day, because I felt like the unreliable narrator thing worked better on the page, but the film was really good.  Both Kazuo Ishiguro and Ian McEwan did the creative writing MA at UEA, although not at the same time, I don't think!  (Trying to keep on topic!).  They are two of my favourite writers.

Re: The Child in Time

Same here, Liberty. I have read everything by Ishiguro and there are currently six McEwans on my shelf. I do not remember the details of The Remains of the Day but the film captured the period feeling and the atmosphere quite well. Emma Thompson and Anthony Hopkins were fabulous. 
And I think there is a certain similarity in the writers in that they like to introduce an element of the supernatural in an otherwise realistic world. Which is something I like reading very much.

Re: The Child in Time

Little bit about Child in Time in this article, nothing really new but it has what Benedict said about it at LFCC.

I hope they give us an idea when this will air soon, I'm really looking forward to seeing it.

Re: The Child in Time

It's new information for me, so it was interesting to hear about his experience working on it.

Re: The Child in Time

I wonder if any of it will be available online afterwards. I know they did a talk with him before and there are a few clips on YouTube from it.
