Three new stills from the upcoming big screen adaptation of the classic young-adult dystopian novel The Giver have been released, offering a look inside the quietly brooding world where the film is set. In this pic, Jeff Bridges, who stars as The Giver, sits at the piano with Taylor Swift, who plays Rosemary, a girl who had also been on track to be The Receiver, but failed her training.
The story follows a 12-year-old boy named Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) who lives in an idyllic community free from war, pain, anger, hatred, suffering or sadness, but is also free of passion and real emotion. He is chosen to be the Receiver of Memory, a job that will isolate him from his friends and family. Regardless, he readily accepts the role.
