The Giver - Teaser Trailer


Jonas is a young man who lives in a community where everybody is the same. Pain and suffering has been abolished by authorities simply by forcing everyone to conform and prohibiting any form of variance. Jonas is about to become an exception to the rule when he is selected as the next Receiver of Memories. His new role requires training from a man called The Giver (the former Receiver) who will subsequently imbue Jonas with knowledge of the world before this compliant society. With that he will understand the pain of death and conflict, but will also begin to understand the importance of love and distinction and it is this that forces him to break away from his community - wishing to live a life with more depth and meaning. However, it soon becomes clear that he's not getting out that easily.

In fact, take your shoes off while you're at it. Now, every couple of hours, pick up a small child and place him or her on your back. Don't stop. Keep this up for several months, and you might begin to comprehend the true-life events that drive Phillip Noyce's Rabbit-Proof Fence.

In 1931, three Aboriginal children did exactly that after being forcibly removed from their homes as part of a mandatory government program. The politically-influenced community system targeted half-castes, Australian children with white fathers and Aborigine mothers. The government, largely personified here by the prim Mr. Neville (Kenneth Branagh), seeks to appeal to the kids' white blood, fostering values and cultural lessons that would benefit the children in their adult years.
