Review: Ya-adaptation 'The Giver' is both ridiculous and morally suspect

14 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I hardly know where to start. So far this year, "Winter's Tale" remains the gold standard for pure unmitigated batshit hubris, and it's the scope of the folly that impresses me most. But if we're ranking films by how dopey they are, then "The Giver" may actually be a contender for some special honors this year. It is a firm belief of mine that you do not need to read a book in order to review a movie. I've never read Lois Lowry's novel, which is evidently fairly well-liked. Originally published in 1993, the book has been controversial, and it's also been enormously popular. In reading about it tonight, one thing becomes clear: the dumbest idea in this very dumb movie appears to be an invention of the film. We'll get into that later, but first, the broad strokes. The film opens with a vague title about the end of the world, »

Harvey Weinstein Recounts Robin Williams' 'Good Will Hunting' Prank on Stellan Skarsgard

14 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Of Robin Williams' many memorable moments onscreen during his Oscar-winning performance in Good Will Hunting, it's his unfilmed scenes that Harvey Weinstein remembers most — specifically, his prank. While visiting CBS This Morning with Katie Holmes on Thursday to chat about The Giver, Weinstein — who gave an impromptu tribute during the film's premiere in New York City, just hours after news spread — reflected on the beloved actor, who died Monday at age 63. "It's been a tough week to collect your thoughts and to think about those implications, because, when you knew Robin, he made everybody else's life so good," he told

See Jeff Bridges’s Candid Behind-the-Scenes Set Photos From The Giver

14 August 2014 5:05 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Since Jeff Bridges’s turn as a lovable alien in 1984’s Starman, the actor has used a Widelux panning still camera to document the making of most of his films. For The Giver, which was filmed in South Africa last October, “my camera was breaking down a lot,” he says, “so I didn’t get as many shots as I usually do.” But he managed to capture Meryl Streep, Taylor Swift, Katie Holmes, and more, in the gallery ahead. Filming The Giver was particularly poignant for Bridges, who optioned it in 1995, with the hope that his dad, actor Lloyd, would play the aging mentor, the Giver. “I was looking through a catalogue of kids’ books, and I came across one with an old grizzled guy on the cover, and I thought, My dad could play that guy.” His father passed away in 1998, and after 16 years of delays, Bridges took »

The Giver Early Review Roundup: Just Another Ya Adaptation? Find Out What the Critics Had to Say

13 August 2014 5:51 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Lois Lowry may have reassured E! News that The Giver is not another teen romance flick, but critics still feel this is something they've seen before—and seen done better. The author of the 1993 dystopian young adult novel admitted she was nervous when she learned that they cast 17-year-old Odeya Rush for Fiona and 24-year-old Brenton Thwaites to play Jonas, the teenage characters who explore their feelings for each other, because the characters in the book are actually only 11 years old. And this didn't go unnoticed by reviewers. But it wasn't so much the casting that left them disappointed—after all, the lineup includes Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Taylor Swift, Katie Holmes and »

Watch: Step Into The World Of 'The Giver' With Jeff Bridges & Meryl Streep With 5 Clips

13 August 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Giver” hits theaters this weekend, and if you’re still on the fence about seeing it, these five clips probably won't seal the deal. At first, we were optimistic about Phillip Noyce’s adaptation of Lois Lowry’s 1993 pre-ya novel, in light of the casting of producer-star Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep inspiring a degree of confidence . But each time we get a closer look, the film looks more and more like a paint-by-numbers dystopian teen disgrace. The most interesting morsel here is a peek at Taylor Swift in her small role as a former “receiver” who now only exists in memory. Appropriately, her performance entails playing music and she appears to be a convincing, unsettling presence on screen. Unfortunately, Streep’s character seems consigned to villainhood with a capital V, too obviously controlling and malevolent and lacking nuance. There’s also an accidentally humorous lip-lock and shots of Katie Holmes delivering lines flatly. »

The Giver Review

13 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the totalitarian, nightmarish future of 2014, a blasted stretch of land in California once known as Hollywoodland lies on the precipice of ruin. Warring studios of the hellscape -now called Hollywood- vie for control of the world’s young adult novel franchises, hoping that one will lead them to a promised land of perpetual twilight, where games of a hungered variety are played in an endless pool of box office receipts. Though the mighty Lionsgate tribe seemed to have once more won the year’s contest with an adaptation known as Divergent, The Weinstein faction has taken a risk, and placed their hope in an older young adult book called “The Giver.”

Quiet, short, and moderately attractive, The Giver is not like other young adult novel movie adaptations. “The Giver” has been around much longer (read: 1993) than the current rash of teen-targeted social sci-fi novels, and predates most of the »

‘The Giver’ Author Lois Lowry Thinks ‘Dystopian Fiction Is Passé’

13 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lois Lowry might just be the godmother of dystopian Ya fiction.

The author of over 40 books is best known for her 1993 novel “The Giver,” a story set in a utopian society where people no longer feel pain. But a sinister side is revealed when Jonas, a young boy, is selected to be the Receiver of Memories — responsible for painful recollections of past suffering so that he can advise a council of elders on how to best serve the community. Jonas is trained by the outgoing Receiver, now called The Giver, and realizes there is a price people pay for living without conflict.

Since “The Giver” was published, books like “The Hunger Games” and “Divergent” have emerged and proven to be popular at the multiplex. But plans for a film version of “The Giver” actually predates them all.

For years, Jeff Bridges hoped to bring “The Giver” to the big screen, »

Meryl Streep talks 'The Giver' and says 'I like to be boss'

12 August 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York -- Currently, Meryl Streep has 18 Academy Award nominations and three wins.  The first nomination was in 1979 for "The Deer Hunter" and the most recent one was this year for "August: Osage County."  It is more Academy Award nominations than anyone else has received.  When she takes a role, people take notice. It is no surprise that at the press conference for the upcoming film, "The Giver," that despite the large number of people on the dais, Meryl Streep sits in the middle of the upper row, a position of prominence.  It is further no surprise that the first time she speaks during the press conference, everyone grows a little more quiet, and the shutter noise from cameras taking photos occurs at a greater frequency.  She is, after all, Meryl Streep. As for the film in question, "The Giver" is a Phillip Noyce ("Patriot Games," "Clear and Present Danger »

The shocking news of Robin Williams’ death broke just moments before the stars of “The Giver” walked down the red carpet at New York’s Ziegfeld Theater on Monday night, casting a shadow over the film’s world premiere.

Jeff Bridges, who appeared with Williams in 1991’s “The Fisher King,” addressed the audience before the movie rolled. “I’m filled with such mixed emotions tonight,” said Bridges, a star and producer of the Weinstein Co. and Walden Media release. “I play the Giver, who is supposed to hold in his emotions, but it’s very difficult for me to be here … losing a dear, dear friend, Robin Williams. I know we’ll all miss him. My heart goes out to his family.” Bridges then said he could feel Williams’ presence in the room, telling him: “Get on with it, Bridges.”

Harvey Weinstein, who produced “The Giver,” also made 1997’s “Good Will Hunting. »
