The Giver (2014) Rating, Reviews - English Movie - Cast, Story - Desimartini.com

Verdict:The Giver is a visually exciting but predictably overdone young adult movie. What could have been a thought provoking book to big screen adaptation, loses its way. Even Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges couldn't save it.

Plot: The haunting story of "The Giver" centers on Jonas, 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, 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.
