The Giver is the latest book turned movie. It is about a boy named Jonas who lives in a world without war, feelings, color, and difference. He is chosen to learn about the past through memories that “The Giver” passes on to him. The cast includes breakout stars like Brenton Thwaites, who plays the main character, and Odeya Rush, who plays Fiona, Jonas’s friend. Taylor Swift, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Cameron Monaghan, and Jeff Bridges also appear in the film. Much like The Hunger Games and Divergent this movie occurs in a futuristic dystopian world. The Giver received a rating of 7.2 out of 10 from IMBD.
I really enjoyed this movie! There was a great mix of humorous and serious scenes that would appeal to a wide range of people. I give the movie a rating of 7.5 out of 10. I recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of The Hunger Games and Divergent because they are quite similar.
