The world of the Giver is a safe existence where everyone is alike, everyone is safe, all babies are born in the test tube. Love does not exist and neither does hate. As a result though, there is no color, music, books, religion, diversity, hope or faith. The Giver is the one person who holds the memories and vision of the past. The story ask many questions and tends to remind us that the idea of giving up freedom to be safe may come with a big price.
Life well lived, come with a price and risks.
Great cast with Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep. Great photography mixing black and gray with vivd color. Enjoyable.
