Description

Based on Lois Lowry's beloved, best-selling young adult novel, the haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), 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 (Jeff Bridges), 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 knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined – a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. With the odds against him, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all – something no one has ever done before.
