The Giver has a interesting story about a perfect world where all memories, emotion, color, and uniqueness are removed from society. Only one person gets to remember the past and every so often he has to pass it down to his successor. I had never read the book but it definitely sounded like my kind of movie. Plus you get Jeff Bridges! Unfortunately its not quite as amazing as you would hope. It has an interesting set up, some beautiful shots, and is pretty well acted but there are some cheesy moments, some things don't make sense to me (maybe because I haven't read the book), the last half of the movie feels extremely rushed and I hated the ending. Overall this movie is worth a rent.
