never let me go by kazuo ishiguro (2005)

Never Let Me Go is incisive and fascinating in its description of boarding school and childhood, but is meanwhile set in a sad, disturbing, difficult situation which, altho fantastical, feels extremely true to home - so unless all that sad and disturbing stuff sounds special to you (and it is special, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not necessarily special in an enjoyable way), I have trouble recommending it.

Loved it as a kid, thought it was dumb in my 20s, now I’ve come back around on this classic sci-fi emo thriller, not only did it inspire a whole raft of culture in its wake, it’s honestly pretty inspiring and touching.

Both the sci-fi elements and the scientist characters are really fun and involving in this carl sagan book adaptation - but on the other hand the love interest is really annoying and the movie should’ve been 30 minutes shorter.
