In Eric Coble’s astonishing and moving adaptation of Lowry’s dystopian tale, twelve-year-old Jonas lives in a perfect world, one without war, fear or pain … but also one without choices. When he is selected to receive special training from The Giver — an old man who keeps all of the memories of the community — Jonas begins a journey to uncover the truth about life and the hypocrisy of his utopian world, discovering in the process what it means to come of age and take control of his own destiny.
