“The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community.”
Judging from the trailer the film is a quite loose adaptation of the book it’s based on… but it still feels faithful to its spirit.
A wise quote from the trailer:
“The way things look and the way things are are very different.”
The Giver (played by Jeff Bridges)
Release date: August 15, 2014.
