5 Beautiful but HauntingBossoma | 16/07/2011 | See all Bossoma's reviews (4)'Never Let Me Go' is a film based upon the novel of the same name by Kazuo Ishiguro. You may want to read this novel before or after watching the film and I would thoroughly recommend it.The story centers around Kathy H, Tommy and Ruth, a close friendship group torn apart by betrayal. After a chilling secret is revealed about their fate, some of the student's of Hailsham take their opportunity to live their life to the fullest whereas others let time escape them. I don't want to give too much away as the beauty of this film is that small minute details are given at intervals to draw you in.The acting is superb; the best of British. Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield give the best performances of their careers giving an honest and true-to-the-book portrayal of their characters. The child actors should also be commended.A must-watch film but beware, the story is chilling and is defintely not a happy one.
