Meryl Streep is just trying to keep it together in the latest trailer for The Giver. Unfortunately for Jonas, played by Brenton Thwaites, “it” happens to be a dystopian future society filled with drugge- out citizens who have no idea what life really is.
Salt and Patriot Games director Phillip Noyce helmed the adaptation of Lois Lowry’s 1993 novel about a boy in a controlled society who starts gaining knowledge from a mysterious figure known as The Giver, played by Jeff Bridges.
Opening Aug. 15, The Giver also stars Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgård, Taylor Swift and Odeya Rush.
