MOVIE REVIEW: THE GIVER


What if you have no emotions. What if everyone is the same and your path has already been chosen for you. What if you all are actually programmed and brainwash to follow what is right for mankind. show centred among 3 characters, Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), Fiona (Odeya Rush) and finally Asher (Cameron Monagham). As they graduate from childhood, they proceed to adulthood where their occupation has been chosen for them based on their capabilities and also adaptation on how well they fare in their "internship". They will be given their occupation by the Chief Elder (Meryl Streep) and from there a Receiver of Memories will be chosen. The chosen will go under the training of The Giver (Jeff Bridges).

 THE GOOD

The shows leaves you with lots to think about. The idea of having a world where everyone is the same as one and another seems to possible at times. Acting from Chief Elder and also The Giver is exceptional with the help of Jonas's mother (Katie Holmes) which somehow makes you convinced that humans are better of being equals. The concept of the movie is good and brings some touching feeling when humans find out what out slowly what they have been missing in order to sacrifice for sameness in the society. Oh, please don't forget Rosemary (Taylor Swift) cameo appearance for a good 3 minute which is a must for her fans.

THE BAD

There is a time when Jonas just seems to not die, while he was searching for the triangle, he was walking for a span of 30 good minutes in the movie with a freaking baby through desert, snow and many other terrains only to come out unharmed and what more surprising alive. Jonas does not seem to eat while the baby just needed one feeding and he is alive throughout the many days. Cliff hanger ending for me makes me rage because I have no idea what happen after that. 

TL;DR: Sameness in society is questioned by one guy who will bring back all the feelings and emotions to be a human.
