How did you enjoy the Giver film after reading the book?

Standard

It’s been awhile since reading the book but “The Giver” is a story that resonates with me on many levels. The book has the three main characters as much younger but the film has matured them a little which makes sense for dramatic and thematic purposes. The movie is a visual feast for the senses. It tells the story of the book faithfully without betraying the basic emotional feel of the story.

The casting was great and anytime you get Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges on board then you can’t go wrong. Both the book and movie make significant social and cultural statements that are important. They remind us of our humanity comes with pain. Good movie, I recommend it for anyone.
