The Giver to release in India on August 15!

Hollywood upcoming science fiction The Giver, starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep and Brenton Thwaites will hit theatres in India on August 15, coinciding with its US release.

The film, based on Lois Lowry’s 1993 novel of the same name, also stars Alexander Skarsgard, Odeya Rush, Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift.

The Giver is directed by Phillip Noyce and produced by Bridges, who also plays the titular role.

“My daughters read the book, but before I had known that they had read it, I was looking for some material to direct my father, Lloyd Bridges,” he recalls.

“I also wanted to make a movie that my kids could watch at the time. I was looking through a catalogue of children books and I came across this wonderful cover of a book, with this old, grizzled kind of guy on the cover and thought, ‘Oh yeah, my dad can play that guy!'” Bridges said.

The film’s story revolves around a young boy Jonas who lives in a seemingly ideal and colourless world of conformity and contentment.

When he begins to spend time with the Giver (Jeff Bridges), who is the sole keeper of all the community’s memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truth of his community’s secret past.

With this knowledge, Jonas realises that he must escape their world to protect his dear ones but it is a challenge that no one has ever overcome.
