Jeff Bridges and Meryl Steep star in The Giver, from Phillip Noyce, director of Clear And Present Danger and it looks pretty damned good.
Promising an intelligent plot that croses Oblivion with Logan’s Run, this could be one of the sleeper movies of the summer – or it that just us?
Check out the trailer and let us know what you think…
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.
