What it's about:

Kathy (Carey Mulligan), Tommy (Andrew Garfield ) and Ruth (Keira Knightley ) 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.

What the critics thought:

"A beautifully realised adaptation of a profoundly affecting novel."
- Dan Jolin, Empire Magazine


"Never Let Me Go is gorgeous. And depressing. It's exquisitely acted. And depressing. It's romantic, profound and superbly crafted, shot with the self-contained radiance of a snow globe. And it's depressing."
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle


"The film is a success. It works. Greatness eludes it, yes. But greatness eludes almost every film adaptation of a major novel, which we must remember when confronted by a good one."
- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

A remarkable story of love, loss and hidden truths.
