Never Let Me Go
Added to my films
Hailsham is an idyllic English boarding school, presided over by a strict but fair headmistress. Children are held to an imposing health regimen, have no parental contact and live in fear of leaving the school grounds. It soon becomes clear that something is not quite right at Hailsham. Young Kathy and Ruth are fast friends; the former bold and confident and the latter soft-spoken and caring. They befriend Tommy, a tormented and socially awkward boy prone to fits of anguish, and the trio hesitantly stumble their way into early adulthood under the guidance of their teachers, without ever having contact with the outside world. Now eighteen-year-olds, Kathy, Ruth and Tommy must leave Hailsham for The Cottages, a mysterious place outside the safety of their school, to learn the ominous future that awaits them.
