The Giver Drama

In an insular society known as The Community, a culture of “sameness” is embraced. Pain and suffering have been eradicated from daily life, along with any notion of individuality or choice. Members of the Community lead a seemingly perfect existence, unburdened by the harsh realities of the “real” world. A lone man among them has been designated to retain all memories of the way life once was. Now the time has come for that man to pass his knowledge to another.

HitFix Reviews and Ratings

  • D
    'The Giver' is a well-regarded novel by Lois Lowry, and it's safe to say no one will ever say that about the film adaptation, a dopey and weirdly literal adaptation that strands Jeff Bridges in an unplayable role, surrounding him with nonsense.
