Never Let Me Go
As children, Ruth, Kathy and Tommy, spend their childhood at a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. As they grow into young adults, they find that they have to come to terms with the strength of the love they feel for each other, while preparing themselves for the haunting reality that awaits them. Written by Fox Searchlight Pictures
Never Let Me Go is a movie based on a Japanese novel, where kids are brought up in this kind of Gothic environment, they seem to be orphans, and we find out – I am not spoiling the plot, that they are really raised as donors for other people. This is kind of a brave new world concept that they are raised to donate organs to other people, that they have wiped out all these diseases and cancers and whatever, and that is what they are doing. So the three people are played by Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield. Carey Mulligan won an Oscar for her portrayal last year, Keira has been in the Pirate of the Caribbean movies and Bend It Like Beckham and Andrew is going to be the new Green Lantern and was in Social Network – these are very well known actors and very pretty and you really care about the movie and it’s certainly bleak and how the final statement is, to a certain extent we are all donors aren’t we, we are all sort of on borrowed time, and it is a thought provoking movie and rather chilling with a love story and how even people who were in dire circumstances tend to have the usual human emotions which is competition and love a. I thought that this was a really terrific movie and I would give it four and a half stars.
