The Giver

PG-13| 1 hr. 37 min.

Plot Summary

The haunting story of 'The Giver' centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, 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 realizes 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 their 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 10 million copies worldwide.

    if you are between the ages of 9 and 12...i suggest you see this movie. anyone else SHOULD find this a terribly immature excuse for a movie. between a 1 and a 5, i give it a 0. yes, that bad.

    We enjoyed it, felt great after it, and were glad we saw it. It was interesting and we quickly got into the story line..it moved along at a well paced clip...everyone seemed to enjoy it. I'd say 4 stars.. it's not a romp 'em/stomp 'em movie but one that will remain with you for a long time. Well played by everyone in Cast. I didn't realize that was Taylor Swift !! Love Jeff Bridges, was supposed to hate Meryl Streep.. but do anyway... new actors were great!
