Never Let Me Go Movie Review
Kathy, Tommy and Ruth live in a world and a time that feel familiar to us, but are not quite like anything we know. They spend their childhood at Hailsham, a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. When they leave the shelter of the school and the terrible truth of their fate is revealed to them, they must also confront the deep feelings of love, jealousy and betrayal that threaten to pull them apart.
For starters, Never Let Me Go is a Britishdystopian film based from the novel with the same name by Kazuo Ishiguro. I find the movie very compelling and profound, in such a way that emotions are all throughout the movie. The narration of Kathy H. would make you emphatize with her because of what happened to her friends and her life. Very deep movie, I suggest though that you read the background of the movie first. Carey, Keira and Andrew performed really great, they weaved you in the movie as if they want you there with them. Director Mark Romanek would want viewers to be reminded of what is important in life, like love, behavior and friendship. After watching, I feel that this is all conveyed. The script is romantic is touching at the same time, given Kathy H.'s narration. The injection of science in the movie made the story more interesting and the ending devastatingly beautiful.
We all complete. Maybe none of us really understand what we've lived through, or feel we've had enough time. - Kathy H.
Never Let Me Go opens exclusively in Ayala Cinemas on March 2. Distributed by Fox Searchlight Pictures.
