The Giver (1) movie

This from a college friend:

“I just read a press announcement that not only stated that Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift were being cast in “The Giver,” but referred to the Lois Lowry book as “yet another” young adult scifi novel. Casting errors aside, for the record, I am HORRIFIED that this book is being lumped with the more recent, consistently love triangle driven, excessively derivative drivel being called young adult scifi today. HUMPH.”

Could not be more right. The Giver is truly a work of important literature. I return to it still.
