Best Line: “The problem is you’ve been told, and not told. That’s what I’ve seen while I’ve been here. You’ve been told that none of you really understand. So I decided I’ll talk to you in a way that you will understand. Do you know what happens to children when they grow up? No, you don’t. Because nobody knows. They might grow up to be actors, move to America. Well, they might work in supermarkets. Or teach in schools. They become sportsmen or bus conductors or racing car drivers. They might do almost anything. But with you we do know. None of you will go to America. None of you will work in supermarkets. None of you will do anything, except live the life that has already been set out for you. You will become adults, but only briefly. Before you are old, before you are even middle aged, you will start to donate your vital organs. And sometime around your third or fourth donation, your short life will be completed. You have to know who you are, and what you are. It’s the only way to lead decent lives”. – Miss Lucy (Sally Hawkins), NEVER LET ME GO (2010)
