"The Giver" is the story of a young man named Jonah who lives in a perfect utopian society--a society lacking decision, pain, horror, or color. Conformity is the norm here, and all members of the community are expected to play their part without question. Jonah meets and begins to talk to an old hermit called "the Giver," the one person who retains all of their society's memories, and begins to realize that his world is not as perfect as he's been led to believe it is. Now, to save them all, Jonah must accomplish what no one else ever has: to escape the community and make his own decisions, bringing back a world full of color and light--but also with the ability to choose, and with it, pain and war and conflict. Like many utopian-society futuristic films, The Giver explores the pros and cons of a society devoid of free will, emotion, and passion.
