So I've taken a look at the film. The place Hailsham seems quite nice at first but the colours have a dulled look about them. There is an ominous mystery about everything, a secrecy that permeates the film. I think this is what makes the whole thing plausible. These kids are kept away from society so they don't know any differently. The film has a dystopian feel to it which again validates its authenticity.

This is a very interesting question, precisely because the world depicted by the film is so plausible. OK film medium requires us to 'suspend our disbelief' for it to work, but one would expect the credibility of this clone dependent society to become a major stumbling block as the story unfolds, one which demands a great deal of explanation to convince us of its feasibility, yet it doesn't, why not? Why do we accept it just as Kathy and Tommy (and just about everyone else) in the story accepts it? Perhaps because we all know, in modern life, to be happy, we live under a comforting umbrella of self-delusion. There are so many facets to modern living which require us to 'turn a blind eye', we all do it, whether it is to do with our nation’s foreign policy, the treatment of immigrants, or the amorality of the corporate system which we all 'buy' into. We are all aware of price, but rarely count the cost. We don't speak of them, not really. At best we, like Tommy in the barren landscape, let out a futile scream when nobody is around to hear it.
