The Giver

July 15, 2014

The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. The film is based on Lois Lowry‘s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

*The Giver: Modern Brave New World or Cautionary Tale?

(excerpt)

High-powered actors Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep give face to the ongoing battle between individual freedom and top-down centralized control. In the second trailer, the emphasis is on the tech solutions that are to be offered in order to bring about the “harmonious community” sought by the technocratic elite headed up by Streep’s character. It’s a world of limits – real and metaphysical – which Bridges’ Morpheus-like character of “The Giver” seeks to undermine.

The symbolism of the red pill of knowledge is offered in this film through a restoration of color – beginning with red – into a grey, emotionless, manufactured world. The red apple appears to symbolize that knowledge is power; or, if Streep’s character is correct, that “when people have the freedom to choose, they choose wrong,” that same red apple becomes symbolic of original sin and evil from her perspective.
