    I advice reading book before watching movie http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Never_Let_Me_Go_(novel). Movie is great, but book is even better, and actually explains a lot of essential details they`ve skipped in movie. 6 years 6 months ago

    Kazuo Ishiguro, the author of the novel this film is based on, has stated that he wanted to write a story about people who are resigned to their fate, and that what the story really is about. The reason none of them try to run away is that they don't even consider it an option, they have been brought up to accept what will happen to them. There are plenty of people in real life who settle for less instead of reaching higher. For various reasons, people stay in unsatisfying relationships and jobs or don't pursue their dreams. Even if they technically have a choice in the matter, they choose the path of least resistance, a.k.a. resigning to their 'fate'. You could see "Never Let Me Go" as an allegory of that. 6 years 10 months ago
