'The Giver' One-Sheets!

By ZACH SEEMAYER

May 22, 2014

Based on the classic young adult dystopian novel by Lois Lowry, The Giver film is set in a colorless, conformist world where people live peaceful existences without war, poverty or sadness. In exchange, they involuntarily give up their right to choice, passion and emotional depth.

Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) is chosen to be the Receiver of Memory, who will mentally store all the memories of the past, before the peaceful "sameness" began, should those memories ever need to be accessed. When Jonas meets The Giver (Jeff Bridges), who was the previous generation's receiver, he begins to understand the importance of passion, love, choice, and emotions of every stripe, and Jonas must decide if he should stay in the safety of his community, or strike out on his own in a world full of dangers, but also true possible happiness.

The Weinstein Company, the studio behind The Giver, has released these eight new, mostly-black and white character posters that hint at the color and emotion slowly creeping into the homogeneous world of the main characters. The Giver hits theaters August 15, 2014, but in the meantime, check out these cool posters!
