A movie adaptation of “The Giver”

A movie adaptation of “The Giver”

Right now, all I can say is “wow”….  and Please, Please, PLEASE do not screw up this book!!!!   

This is my favorite YA novel to teach…   I really hope this movie stays (mostly) true to the novel… especially the theme… If the producers turn this into some kind of angst-ridden love story, I might just go off the deep end!   Of course I’m not holding out too much hope as Swift’s role is being described as “leading lady”…  um… I’m pretty sure that Jonas was the leading man… hanging out all by himself off a limb with just “The Giver” (Jeff Bridges) for any real support….   

Ugh!  I hope, I hope……
