Maybe it’s just because I haven’t read Lois Lowry’s book in a long time, but;
-Is The Giver as futuristic-looking as this? I don’t remember technology being such a huge part of the book as it is presented here. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.
-I know for a fact that one of the big things is the lack of color in this world. You’d think that most of the film would be shot in black and white, no? Something of a Pleasantville vibe to it? At least not so much damn blue everywhere.
-Meryl Streep is pulling off a really nice Anjelica Huston impression.
