The Giver is an interesting case in modern cinema. Yes the film adaptation is coming on the heels of popular successes The Hunger Games, and most likely Divergent (the reviews are terrible but it will make a lot of money), but this one has the potential to be different, the potential to be better. The Lois Lowry YA novel is a much source material, and was around long before this new phase of dystopia literature hit this new generation. Plus, at least you know you are going to get some top notch scenes out of Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges. As always, we'll have to wait and see.
