The Giver is Going to be a Movie!

If you or your kids read The Giver, by Lois Lowry, you'll be excited to know that it is coming to the big screen soon!


And if not, this was a great piece of dystopian science fiction for young adults, so you might want to read it now before it comes out!

Book Description:

"Jonas' world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back."

View the trailer now:



Cast includes Alexander Skarsgard, Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Katie Holmes, Brenton Thwaites, and Taylor Swift.
Interesting.
Right now, IMDB has the release date set as August 15th.
