Were The Giver a tween action/romance novel I would say that the movie version looks no worse than The Hunger Games or Divergent or any other popular dystopic novel turned into a film. But it's not, not even close. The book is an amazing & complex look at human society, one that reads different every year you read it, a changing narrative that has some great & simple messages. This movie version looks to be going off on a tangent of its own and I'm not happy about it.
