The Giver Official Trailer
Coming to theaters August 15, 2014!
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. The film is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbury Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
Oscar-winning actors Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep are pitted against each other with Streep as the serious, gray-haired villain Chief Elder, and Bridges as The Giver, counseling newcomer Brenton Thwaites’ character Jonas in the dystopian thriller set in a time after the world is reduced to “sameness.”
