Never Let Me Go is another great dark-topia movie. I will have major spoilers in this review so if you do not want to know too much about the movie, then, I suggest you watch the movie before you read the rest of this review.
So, now back to our regular scheduled programming.
Never Let Me Go is about a girl named Kathy and her two friends. Her two friends are named Tommy and Ruth. Kathy goes to school at a “prestigious” institution called Hailsham. She learns, grows and becomes a woman at that institution. However, Kathy, Tommy and Ruth are different from the other people out there in the world. Kathy, Tommy and Ruth are clones. The clones have one reason to live. They will give “donations” when they are older. A “donation” is when a clones’ internal organ is removed to give-out to a normal human-being who is in need of that internal organ. The clones only have around three donations to give-out during his or her lifetime before they die.
Kathy and Tommy are in-love. They try to find a way to live a longer life because of the two’s love. Kathy and Tommy try to find the old teachers that raised them at Hailsham. There are rumors that there is a loop-hole out there for the clones. The rumor is that if two clones are in-love the two may get a few more years to live with one another out in the world.
The rumor is a lie. Kathy and Tommy find-out that there is no loop-hole for them. They succumb to what is inevitable… death. Tommy and Ruth die first. Then, Kathy dies when it is time.
This movie is a very dark movie. It gives you a peak into a world that may exist one day if humanity moves in the wrong direction.
I give this movie 5/5-star rating. I thought it was dark and haunting. It will be ingrained in my mind forever.
That’s it for now. Until my next review…
