Never Let Me Go, the film adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s acclaimed dystopian novel of the same name, opened in theaters on Wednesday, September 15th.
The film and novel follow the lives of friends Kathy, Tommy and Ruth as they grow up together at an exclusive English boarding school, then discover the truth behind their sheltered childhoods and ultimate fates. A reviewer for Publisher’s Weekly writes: “in savoring the subtle shades of atmosphere and innuendo in these three small, tightly bound lives, Ishiguro spins a stinging cautionary tale of science outpacing ethics.”
The novel won the Alex Award in 2006, given by the American Library Association for adult novels that have special appeal for young readers. It also appeared on Time magazine’s list of the 100 best English-language novels (1923-2005).
