The giver is a film based on young adult novel by Lois Lowry. It was premiered on august 11,2014 ,and released in USA ,on august 15. Film was directed by Philip Noyce and starring Jeff Bridges,Brenton Thwaites, Odeya Rush, Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgård, Katie Holmes, Cameron Monaghan, Taylor Swift, and Emma Tremblay.
Film is about colourless,ideal,unemotional world,where you can’t lie,and there is no pain and war. While everyone see only black and white, only Givers can see colours, and also they keep community’s memories. There are injection machines in every houses, it “helps” people to be unemotional and to not see the colours. Also ,babies are brought into being through genetic engineering.
Main character of this film is Jonas. On his graduation day Jonas is told that he will become next Giver. So he started having trainings with Giver,and he started to give to Jonas his memories. During his trainings with Giver,he learns about love,joy,happiness,pain and death. So Jonas stops taking his daily injections, and begins to experience emotions and seeing colours. Then Jonas tells Fiona (his friend),to stop taking daily injections. The next day he kisses her. Kiss is action which is unknown for community,but Jonas learned that from Giver’s memory. Also touching non-family member is against the rules.
I don’t wan’t to tell the whole movie,so you can watch it here.
Sometimes I think,that maybe future will be like that film ,unemotional,without colours and love, and that thought scares me. I hope that everything will be great, and we will have colourful and happy life.
