The Giver, new movie based on YA writer Lois Lowry's award-winning series, has been in the making for almost 18 years. Director Phillip Noyce has remained dedicated to the book's essence, but, according to some critics, his deadpan style has sacrificed the mystic aspect and ambiguous ending of the novel, making it more like so many movies which were made in the past few years, based on Hunger Games and Divergent, books written after The Giver, and obviously inspired by it. Jeff Bridges appears as the all-knowing Giver, a role that was planned for his father Lloyd 18 years ago.
