The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for director Phillip Noyce’s adaptation of the novel The Giver. The story takes place in a utopian society where all memories of the past reside with a sage figure known as “The Giver”. Jeff Bridges plays the title character and Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent) plays a young boy who has been selected to be the new Giver.
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.
