The Giver ** 1/2

The Giver tells the coming-of-age story of Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colourless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with The Giver (Jeff Bridges), who is the sole keeper of all the community’s memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community’s secret past.
With this newfound power of knowledge, he realises that the stakes are higher than imagined – a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape this world to protect them all – a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before.
The Giver is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 12 million copies worldwide.

Starring: Brenton Thwaites, Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep
Director: Phillip Noyce
