The Giver 97mins12A YOUNG adults impatient for the next instalment of The Hunger Games will find plenty to enjoy in this thriller based on the Lois Lowry novel.

In the near future, following the unexplained Ruin, society has been organised into communities where memories have been erased and EMOTIONS are banned.

It's against this dystopian backdrop that we meet the Teenage Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), who's been chosen to be the receiver of past memories from The Giver (Jeff Bridges). As he learns of life in the past, Jonas develops forbidden personality traits, such as morality and rebellion.

Also starring Meryl Streep, Odeya Rush and Katie Holmes.
