The trailer for director Phillip Noyce’s film adaptation of the best-selling novel “The Giver” is online. Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites, Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgard, Katie Holmes, Cameron Monaghan, and Taylor Swift star in the pic.
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.
