The Giver

Have you seen the movie "The Giver" yet? Hubby and I read the book, and we both enjoyed it. I have to say that the transition from the book to the movie was great.  I thought it's a good movie for the whole family to enjoy. 
We watched the movie the day after the premier, and we all loved it! You guys should watch it too! 
This film, based on Lois Lowry's book, tells the story of a perfect world. Everyone here is happy. When Jonas is 12 years old, he's chosen to be the community's Receiver of Memories. He enters into training with an old man called The Giver. From the Giver, Jonas learns about pain, sadness, war, and all the unhappy truths of the "real" world. He quickly realizes that his community is fake. Confronted with this reality, Jonas faces difficult choices about his own life and his future.
