Never Let Me Go
Sad, sad, sad.
In case you don’t know the story, I don’t do spoilers.
But imagine that you absolutely know, without doubt, that something terrible is going to happen to you. You can’t do anything about it. In fact, you’ve grown to accept that it is your destiny.
This is not a horror film; it’s emotionally blank, but at the same time highly moving. It doesn’t sensationalise the issue, but you are left in no doubt as to just how sad and pointless life is for the young people at the centre of the story.
When the film finished, I wasn’t sure how I felt – I think because of the lack of emotion on screen. But it’s been on my mind since I woke this morning, so it has definitely left its mark.
Conclusion? Strangely affecting, subdued, and very touching.
