The original novel, “The Giver”, by Lois Lowry is a modern day classic. The film itself has been one huge labor of love for Jeff Bridges ever since he read the book and bought the rights. Originally he wanted his father, Lloyd, to play the title character. That alone should tell you how long he has been trying to make this film. Check out these new clips from the upcoming film. We here at Mania hope they didn’t stray to far from the novel.
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.
