Storyline

In a perfect world where there is no conflict, racism or sickness, every member of society has a specific role, and 16-year-old Jonas is selected to be the Receiver of Memories. As Jonas uncovers the truth behind his world's past, he discovers that many years earlier his forefathers gave up humanity in order to have a stable society.

Additional Notes:

Adapted from Lois Lowry's 1994 Newbery winning book.

Jeff Bridges has long been attached to play the title role, who is the most important person in the Community; he bought the rights to "The Giver" two decades ago, originally envisioning it as a vehicle for his father Lloyd (Daily Variety, 11/7/12).
