Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgard, Katie Holmes, Taylor Swift and hot Australian newcomer Brenton Thwaites star in this haunting vision of the future, where a seemingly Utopian society hides dark and deadly secrets.
Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) is coming of age in an ideal society without war, pain, suffering, disease, difference or choice. Even love has been rendered obsolete. No-one questions anything, no-one remembers the past and no-one ventures beyond the borders. Jonas has just been chosen as the sole person to learn the truths of the 'real' world and is sent to train with 'the keeper of memories', The Giver (Jeff Bridges). But knowledge is power and as Jonas learns more about his fake world, he soon realises it is a matter of life and death that he escape. This will be his only chance to protect the people he loves.
Based on Lois Lowry's cult young adult novel that has sold over 10 million copies, The Giver is a powerful tale of a dystopian future where perfection can be deadly.
