About The Giver

In a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice, a young boy is chosen to learn from an elderly man about the true pain and pleasure of the "real" world.

About

Based on Lois Lowry's book of the same name, this adaptation is about a young boy who finds out the dark truth of his utopic society.

Trivia

The film was mostly shot in South Africa. Meryl Streep shot some of her scenes in England due to her shooting the film Into the Woods around the same time.
