Movie Review:
I thought I had read this book only to realize while watching the movie that I never have, but I definitely will over the summer.  This was such an interesting story about a dystopian society where memory has been lost and primary goals of the society elders are to promote sameness and tranquility.  At age 18 in the society all the children transition into their adult functions.  It's at this point that the main character Jonas learns that he will be the next Receiver.  A complex relationship then emerges between the Giver and the Receiver.  I loved the cinematography in this film and the costumes and sets were gorgeous.  If you haven't had a chance to watch this one I highly recommend it.
