Kathy H. (Mulligan) is a woman looking back on her life, from her childhood days at Hailsham boarding school with best friends Ruth (Purnell/Knightley) and Tommy (Rowe/Garfield). Like all the other Hailsham pupils, the three have a very particular destiny — one which, together, they slowly grow to understand, and struggle to accept.
A beautifully realised adaptation of a profoundly affecting novel. Intelligent sci-fi provides the backdrop, while in the foreground is a trio of truly impressive performances from Mulligan, Knightley and Garfield.
