The Giver Official Trailer

Not a Twilight Type Story

Do not think that this is another Twilight type story. It is not. I have read Lois Lowry’s original novel, The Giver, and I highly recommend checking out. It is a great piece of literature and science fiction. Outside of Taylor Swift and Katie Holmes being in the film, this looks like an incredible adaptation. 
 
The Plot: December is the time of the annual Ceremony at which each twelve-year-old receives a life assignment determined by the Elders. Jonas watches his friend Fiona named Caretaker of the Old and his cheerful pal Asher labeled the Assistant Director of Recreation. But Jonas has been chosen for something special. When his selection leads him to an unnamed man-the man called only the Giver-he begins to sense the dark secrets that underlie the fragile perfection of his world. Given his lifetime assignment at the Ceremony of Twelve, Jonas becomes the receiver of memories shared by only one other in his community and discovers the terrible truth about the society in which he lives.

The Giver features Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgård, and Taylor Swift. 

The Giver arrives August 15th, 2014.

 What's your issue with Katie Holmes?

This reminds me of THX 1138.  I mean I'm not saying I know exactly what this is all about, but from what I saw, it seems a lot like that.

I personally wasn't a fan of the book.  I found it tedious and boring, but to each and one his (or her) own I guess...

Is it me or does Jeff Bridges look like Brett Favre in this movie??  

Because I think he must have called him by phone and said, "Hey Brett, do you mind if I sport your hair?  Ever since you retired, your wilderbeast look you've been sporting makes you look a lot older than me."

 Doesn't this look exactly like the plot of the other movie coming out  - Divergent?
