Never let me go (2010)

We follow a bunch of special children in a special school to their adulthood and eventual deaths as clones with no purpose other than to be emergency organ supplies.

As a science fiction movie set in what appears to be an authoritarian dystopia, Never let me go can be compared to Gattaca.

Never let me go is far more sentimental. And like Remains of the day, Ishiguro seems to suggest that one's greatest triumph is in submitting to the wheel of fate.
