What would life be like if everyone was the same? Find out in the recently released trailer for The Giver.
The film, starting Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep and Brenton Thwaites is based on the 1993 bestselling novel by Lois Lowry.
The story follows Jonas (Thwaites) a boy living in a “perfect” world. The community he lives in practices “Sameness” and the people there don’t know of war, violence, dangers or anything else bad in the world. But this also means they’ve given up all emotions including love and happiness. Jonas is chosen to receive the knowledge about the “real” world — a world, like ours, which knows of pain and suffering but also joy and peace.
The first trailer doesn’t explore too much of the story, but it looks like an action packed, emotional, sci-fi movie and we can’t wait to see it.
The Giver hits theatres on Aug. 15.
