The Giver

Rated PG-13 97 minutes 2014

In the dystopian future, a bright young man named Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) fights the power with help from the title wise man (Jeff Bridges), and we’re suppressing yawns five minutes after the opening credits. Director Phillip Noyce, screenwriters Michael Mitnick and Robert B. Weide, and novelist Lois Lowry add absolutely nothing to the literature. Not even Meryl Streep, as the controlling Chief Elder, can add any sizzle to Jonas’ predicament. When the unbelievably mawkish ending finally arrives, we’ve already sent this lazy sci-fi retread to the Valley of Forgotten Legends. Costarring Odeya Rush (100 min.)
