Lois Lowry‘s The Giver is one of the most read young adult novels among middle schools. I remember “reading” it in school, yet I’m having a hard time remembering any actual specifics from the novel, aside from its title and general plot.
Now, we’ve got a film adaptation coming from director Phillip Noyce and starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep and Brenton Thwaites.
The first trailer strikes me as dull and unimaginative, with a palette of dark and boring colors that help it fit snug with the rest of the recent young adult novel adaptations that have been hitting us in rather large waves.
This trailer will be attached to Divergent, which opens this weekend.
