THE GIVER Featurette With Author Lois Lowry
Author Lois Lowry discusses the story and characters in her book, THE GIVER, in this new featurette from The Weinstein Company.
The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community.
Directed by Phillip Noyce, the film is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbury Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
Starring Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgard, Katie Holmes, Odeya Rush, Cameron Monaghan and Taylor Swift, THE GIVER opens in theaters on August 15th.
