The Giver – Movie Review
The Giver; Movie Review
Imagine living in a world with no colors, or feelings. It doesn’t sound very interesting or fun. Does it? This is the world that Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) has to live in. This is the reality of Jonas and of his community. This inspiring film takes us through Jonas’ journey as he tries to make things right.

When Jonas becomes a twelve he is given the assignment of receiver of memory. He realizes that the world he is living in is made up of secrets and lies. When he becomes receiver of memory he is taught by The Giver (Jeff Bridges) that there is more beyond his community. Beyond his community there is a world full of colors and sounds, a world with more than just rude. As receiver of memory he has no choice but to keep this to himself.

Jonas’ mother (Katie Holmes) and father (Alexander Skarsgard) both encourage precision of language in their dwelling. Lily (Emma Tremblay) is Jonas’ little sister. Lily is a nine and loves telling stories. The chief elder (Meryl Streep) is very evil, she will do whatever it takes, in her eyes, to make the community better. In the movie, she is in charge of all communities. Asher (Cameron Monaghan) tries to support Jonas. Jonas falls in love with Fiona (Odeya Rush) after being friends
