Never Let Me Go is one of the most interesting adaptations of a book to a film I have seen in my life. It includes a great deal more detail into the relationships between characters than the book was able to get by, but far less detail surrounding the exact events of the story. The book gave a more silent, yet objective view of the world, as the story follows multiple characters at once, and allows the viewer to make up their own mind about each character and scenario. It's interesting to see the story not only from Kathy H.'s or another clone's viewpoint, but also to give a perspective of a normal human, looking in. The scene where Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy are looking to who they believe in the model of Ruth, we can clearly see the surprise and feeling of uncomfortableness on the woman's face as she sees people just staring at her. While in the text they do not share such raw emotion of the character, but rather Kathy H.'s perspective of the emotion of a character. It is refreshing to see an unfiltered outlook on the story. There is also the bold choice to reveal the purpose of Hailsham earlier than in the book, but it chooses to ignore the more radical effects of Hailsham until further into the film. It's a good way of giving credit and a little bit of a nod towards people who read the book, as the film hints at many themes that were explored in the text, but lacking in the film. The film falls through compared to the book in a few ways, the major being cut content. The Hailsham scenes felt rushed, and the filmed dwelled too much on the Cabin scenes. It was a great deal of detail put into the donations scenes that really amplifies the horror of the scenario, which I personally felt was lacking in the book, but adapted really well into the film. The music score was average at best, with some really well made pieces that fit the feeling of the scene, and some horrible choices that drew me out of the story and set. The lines were done very well, and characters look the way they should, and overall it was an above average film, but very well done for a movie adaptation of a book. Although, like most films in this vein, I feel that the film is best appreciated after reading the text.
